Once a Great White Gets its Eyes on You, You Will Never Sleep Easily Again

June 22, 2009

I recently wrote about a surfer who survived a “close encounter” with a great white shark. I recently learned that the great shark followed him home and ate him.

As this scientific study explains, great white sharks stalk their victims like serial killers.

    Sharks are clever and efficient – they’ve been the ocean’s top predator (and let’s not forget that the earth is 70% ocean) for millions of years. That makes them more successful as a species than us by quite some margin.

    A pity then, that most species of shark are now in imminent danger of extinction.

    Quite apart from the dire consequences for our fish stocks and the health of our oceans concomitant with the loss of the food-webs’ apex predator…

    *steps off soap box*


  2. Followed him home and ate him? Wow. And I think I have problems?

    Maybe it followed the sea lion pup who ended up on the 880 in the Bay Area?

    Just a thought…
