Do you live in South Africa or were you on a vacation/trip of sorts?

And how much did it cost? I honestly would love to go on a trip simply to track these beautiful creatures about and witness them in person. No one seems to understand that they're not as scary as they seem. Hell, they don't even attack unless provoked.

I was in Africa for a month a few years ago... just vacation. It was quite expensive, but flew for free on freequent flyer miles. I'd highly recommend going there. it's magical.

oh i bet it is. i've been hinking about it ever since i got into sharks a while back and i really think i'd enjoy it. the price is the only thing i should be worried about, when, with time, won't be too much of a worry if i work toward it. :heart:

We consider them monsters but we are in fact for the countless slaughtering.

He looks almost inquisitive, are sharks intelligent enough to be curious?

Very much so.

I wish people wouldnt see them as 'man-eaters' its just a mistake they make. Everyone keeps killing them. :cry:

I agree. They really don't kill that many people... Bull sharks are way worse.
