Shark scientists are working very hard to change the public perception of sharks from one of a bloodthirsty killer to one of the most important species in the sea. Sharks inhabit every ocean at nearly every zone — even the impossibly deep — and have been on this planet for a staggering 400 million years. They are incredible creatures, and sadly, many human fatalities by sharks cannot be helped, as nature itself is a savage beast. But when these things happen, the knee-jerk reaction is that the offending animal (or even more) must be killed, as it is a terrifying monster that stalks the seas in search of human blood.
Movies play a role in the public’s perception of sharks as monsters, but it almost seems like some of them are making parodies of the idea that sharks are man-hunters. They’re too outrageous to be anything close to reality, yet they scare the daylights out of people all over the world. Enjoy our top 3 worst shark movie clips!
