Why do sharks attack people?
Well, sharks attack us because they mistake us for seals, their favorite meal. They don't have very good eye sight so they use their senses to find their prey. They can detect the electric fields our bodies give off, they can also smell blood from about a mile away, and they can also detect movement of struggling or moving animals. If you are bleeding or splashing or doing stuff that attract sharks, the shark(s) are sure to investiagate and to find out what is food or not food, they must taste it. If you are in murky water or in the water at night the sharks can't make out what they are about to attack.
Do Great White Sharks Really Jump Into The Air?
Yes, Great White Sharks jump into the air (left). At seal island, in South Africa, groups of great white sharks gather. When seals swim out into the ocean the great whites follow them from below and then at the right time, BAM, they swim directly upward towards the seal, picking up speed. Then they jump out of the water, catching the seal (sometimes missing), and falling back into the water. It is amazing, they do summersalts, and flips, and a whole bunch of acrobatic things while in the air.
