Day 200 1/11/14: Spellbinding Shark Stories for a Saturday!

great-white-shark-1-1I’m sorry that some of these are a day or two old, which I know is kind of a sin in this hyper immediate world in which we live, blah. blah. Anyway, here are some interesting stories you might enjoy:

1. An interesting perspective: Shark attack victims react to Australia’s shark cull.

2. File Under: A story I wish I had not read:¬†Leo DiCaprio describes how his great white cage diving experience went rather, um…wrong.

3. Wanna learn about weird, ancient spoon-billed sharks? Sure you do!

4. New Zealand to ban shark finning!
