"It's a carcaradon carcharias. It's a Great White" -Jaws
I don't have a solid reason that I am so fascinated with not only sharks, but creatures of the sea in general.
I remember watching Jaws on HBO, surrounded by sisters and cousins, at my Grandma's house. We were all so excited to see the movie that I can't think of any other time that we did not move a muscle, or make a sound, for almost two hours.
Shark Week begins this Sunday on the Discovery Channel, and I'm already searching for episodes to record in the event that I can't watch them "live".
Maybe it's because Sharks are so unreachable (and uh, I'll keep it that way thank you), or are so out of the norm from what I can see in my daily life. You won't find me joining expeditions where one can "swim with the sharks", I'll just continue to admire them from afar, that is, through my t.v. screen or at an Aquarium at some random city by the sea. If I'm on a large enough boat, out on the ocean horizon, and I'm able to see one, I don't think I would mind that. But that's as far is it goes.
They simply fascinate me.
