    Sharks...especially Great Whites are awsome to watch.

    Ever since I saw Jaws when I was 9 I've been fascinated by them and terrified.

    I have many books and video's and I watch things on TV about them all the time.

    Shark Week on the Discovery Channel is a Favorite.:D

    Almost went diving with them at the Farallon islands off San Francisco.

    I will next time.

    Awesome and scary at the same time. I would not want one of those jumping out of the water at me.

    The action shots/videos of Great Whites jumping out of the water are the coolest action-nature shots on the planet.

    Snakes constricting would have to be #2.

    I rode a Bull once................ONCE!!!!

    You couldn't even get me NEAR the ocean...just cos I know there's a lot of hungry mouths therein.

    If given a choice that I had to take.....I'd take on a full sized bull on land before I'd face even an adolecsent shark in water......And I was always a good swimmer.

    Sharkweek is great yet there is a very mixed message. Sharks WILL KILL AND DESTROY YOU, but they are more scared of you than you are scared of them. ha.

    Off Cape Cod last few years we have had Great White Sightings. Mostly due to build up of Seal populations.

    If you go in water sunup or sundown you are nuts.... I was at Cape a few years back watching scores of people wading out to be with a bunch of Seals mid offshore. Not only are they at risk for a Seal attack but a shark strike.

    When we lived outside of Houston a few years back,I spent a lot of time wade fishing for Specs,reds,flounder,etc. On Saturday mornings you could normally find me out on the third sandbar,tossing mirrolures or Tony Acetta spoons till my arm got tired! My favorite spot was off the North Jetty in Galveston. We would catch the Bolivar Ferry well before sun-up,and after walking the rocks for awhile,get into the water in the flats and fish. It was there where I learned why the seasoned pluggers had loooooong stringers, which could be detached at a moments notice. That was because of the "GrayFin Express" (As the retired writer for the Chronicle,Joe Doggett,used to call sharks!). They weren't large,especially by Great White standards, and you didn't see them every trip,but 4 or 5 footers were the norm when they did decide they wanted to check out your stringer. It may sound strange,but we didn't worry about it too much. We were more worried about stepping on a ray,which shuffling your feet as you waded pretty well prevented.

    Those were good times. It's sad,but a good fishing buddy,who had his share of shark encounters,ended up being killed by a drunk,wanted convict driver,who stole a van and ran a red light, "t-boning" my friends SUV,killing him instantly when his vehicle exploded,trapping him inside. The convict walked away from it. Go figure!
