Shark Week

    The Discovery Channel has dedicated this week to sharks. The kids, Cari & I always enjoy seeing all the great footage & stories on this channel. This blog has some interesting facts and a few videos I wanted to share about sharks.

    • Some species of shark can have a total of up to 30,000 teeth in their lifetime.

    • Dried shark skin has had many uses over the years including sandpaper and in Germany and Japan for non-slip grips for swords.

    • More men are attacked by sharks than women. It is a mystery why.

    • Over 9 out of 10 people attacked by a shark will survive.

    • More people are killed by bee stings than by a shark attack.

    • Great White sharks grow about 10 inches per year. When fully grown great white sharks can be as long as 12 to 14 feet.
