Sharks can be very scary, which is what their huge teeth and fins are worth. Many species of sharks are protected by international laws, so they can not be fished and killed, but some species can still be hunted without breaking the law. If you are interested in fishing sharks, the safest way to do this is to apply for a license that allows you to fish sea fish, pick up the necessary tools and learn how to fish. It is also important to learn how to protect yourself from sharks if you accidentally fall into the water.
How do white sharks attack?
So, when hunting for seals or fur seals, a huge white death machine first watches the flock, looking for the weakest and slowest animal in the group. After that, the shark waits for the seal to separate from the group of brothers and end up in muddy water.
And only then, with a swift movement, an ocean monster attacks an unsuspecting victim.
The period of tracking and waiting can last for hours.
According to scientists, white sharks, like no other species, have the psychology of serial killers. They are extremely smart: the shark brain is a well-coordinated system comparable to the brain of some mammals. They think and choose the technique and methods of attack.
In addition, these majestic animals are able to learn from their own, leading to failure, mistakes. So, if a young individual makes mistakes when hunting, then an adult animal almost never. Perfect body, perfect brain. The perfect killer.
Watch video - White Shark Attack:
When attacking, a white shark uses attack-offensive tactics. Bite - and sail away. After a bite again. This is primarily due to the fact that sea beauties do not have a protective eyelid on the eye. Their organs of vision are very vulnerable, and protecting themselves, the same seal can damage the sensitive organs of the shark.
Therefore, having bitten and quickly set sail, the predator protects itself from damage. Also, white sharks, after the first attack, wait when the victim loses strength. A haggard animal is easier to grab - isn't it?
White sharks attack humans
The attack of white sharks on humans in extremely rare cases leads to the immediate death of the latter. Having bitten, the shark realizes that it was mistaken: the sinewy bony body is not the best product in its diet. Therefore, white death floats away.
When attacked, the shark does not immediately bite off parts of the body. When the victims are dragged ashore, cuts are found on their bodies - this shark tastes potential food for edibility.

Another thing is when a person provokes an attack himself - by entering its territory, feeding sharks, approaching during mating games. But here the white queen does not attack immediately. She warns, warns, arching her back and making sweeping movements of the tail of the body.
The pectoral fins thus lower, the jaw opens slightly, the tail moves intensively. A shark makes it clear that it is being forced to defend itself. And, if a person does not leave, the shark attacks, while often tearing off parts of the body, but not swallowing them. Shark avenges border breaking.

Another important fact related to shark hunting is its attachment to a particular place. If the white-bellied predator has already chosen a feeding place for itself, then it is easier to kill than to discourage. And she will attack again and again at a favorite site.
The queen of salt waters - a great white shark - has always been publicly censured. She was hated and feared. But now, when the psychology and lifestyle of deadly predators is investigated in detail, it became known that these animals are not soulless, senseless meat eaters, but highly organized creatures with their centuries-old history.
White sharks need not be afraid. They must be respected.
