See-Food Activity

Shark attacks occur all over the world, but a majority happen in the waters around Australia, the southern tip of Africa, Hawaii, and Florida. In these locations, the water is particularly warm, which attracts many beach-goers into the shark’s natural habitat.

Why Sharks Attack:

Most shark attacks are a case of mistaken identity. During their attack, the victim is mistaken for prey and rarely catches a glimpse of their attacker, who flees the scene after inflicting a single bite. Rarely do sharks make repeated attacks, intentionally consuming a human victim. How easy is it for a shark to mistake a human for its prey? From a shark’s point of view, a surfer or swimmer can look quite similar to a turtle or seal.

Look Up:

Look up when you're walking through the Aquarium Pyramid Shark Tunnel to see if you can tell the difference between a surfer and a seal or a turtle and a flotation device.
