I wait all year for SHARK WEEK – I’m sure you know someone who feels the same!
I love this cartoon from SHOEBOX!!!
This seasons SHARK WEEK was fantastic! I still can’t get over how gutsy some of the researchers are! Especially Andy Casagrande ABC4EXPLORE!!! I yelled at the TV numerous times for him to get back in the boat, turn around, or “What are you thinking?!”!
We also found out if Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps could outswim a Great White shark. (I won’t tell you the outcome just in case you haven’t watched it!)
Who didn’t end up a little bit more afraid of getting in the ocean after seeing “JAWS”? My brothers tried to tell me that the science labs in New Mexico had made INVISIBLE SHARKS they were testing for the military — and they could be in our pool! 😱 I didn’t believe them…but to err on the side of caution I made them get in the pool first!
I have a strange LOVE / TERRIFIED passion about sharks. I watch every documentary, read about them and watch countless videos. I even want to go cage diving to see them up close! Yet, I’m petrified at the thought of getting accidentally chomped on by one of them!
I did catch and release a small Dog Shark off of Cape May, NJ!
I wouldn’t be fishing around there right now since they’ve sighted a Great White that’s named Hilton 60 miles off of Atlantic City, NJ.
He weighed 1326 pounds when he was tagged on March 3, 2017 at Hilton Head, South Carolina.
You can see Hilton in this video: Hilton The Shark
You can learn about Hilton from OCEARCH: HERE
As we wind down SHARK WEEK 2017 – it was a great time to learn about sharks, their behavior, and the importance of protecting them. But the best part … spending that time with my daughter Theresa. This pic pretty much sums up the end to Shark Week – exhausted!
…until next year my Shark Week buddies – Swim on!!! 🦈
