Photographer's Note

Newport Oregon's Aquarium has three walk through tunnels and my favorite is the shark one.

Sharks have been unjustly treated in the movies and books. They have been around the world for over 400 million years. They prefer sea lions and seals to humans, and usually spit out humans who look like seals in their black wet suits. Sharks will use teeth, tails, gill rakers, sound, smell, sight, lips, head and even electricity to find, catch and devour their food. Your chances of being killed by a shark are about one in 300 million, and less if you do not venture into deep ocean waters.

There are over 450 species of sharks and only three are man killers, the Great White, Hammerhead, and Tiger Shark. The smallest species are less than a foot and the largest 50 feet.
