Shark Bait

It’s finally here. The most wonderful time of the year! The 24th annual Shark Week has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited. Every year I tune in to watch everything related to my favorite fish as mentioned in this post. Shark Week was created to help the average person have a greater respect and understanding of sharks, to help see them as more than mindless killing machines. I can only speak for myself, but the week long event has only increased my love for sharks.

Every year there are fascinating, new specials, like Air Jaws, Day of the Shark, and Rogue Sharks. This year, you can even watch a live feed from the Georgia Aquarium here; complete with shark feedings and diver Q & A. Yes, I have been watching-a lot.

This year’s new host, and Chief Shark Officer, is the hilarious Andy Samberg. Even more reason to watch!

I love Discovery Channel’s promotional ads, featuring Lady Gaga’s Teeth (an inspired choice IMO), you can check out the video here. Is there anything more exciting than watching a Great White breach the water? I think not. Shark Week signals summer to me like nothing else, which begs the question; do you dare go into the water?

What about you? Are you also a fan of Shark Week? Have you ever gone on a shark dive?

    I am a HUGE fan! Sharks absolutely terrify me, which just further fuels the obsession. It also keeps me from ever wanting to do a shark dive…ever.
