What shark are you most like and why?I think I am most like the Scalloped Hammerhead Shark. I enjoy being social and love being surrounded by other ocean minded people like me, just like when Hammerheads school together in the wild. I also enjoy warm temperate waters
If you could tell people one thing about sharks and/or the oceans, what would it be?The oceans are our life support system (no matter where you live). The oceans need sharks to be in balance and, in turn, we as humans need the ocean to keep our planet healthy.
How did sharks draw you into their watery world? Sharks are beautiful misunderstood creatures. I have always been fascinated with them and now that I understand them I want to help others understand them and love them too!
