You scared of sharks? In reality, you have more chances of being struck by lightning than being bitten by a shark. Still, sharks do have a bad rap, even though they’re not as horrible as people think. They’ve even been known to save people! No, really, sharks are amazing!
Did you know, for example, that they can hear as far as 800 ft away? They’re even able to catch the sound of their prey tensing its muscles. They’re also older than dinosaurs. Scientists believe sharks have been around for about 450 million years. For comparison, the first dinosaurs appeared more than 200 million years later!
