One of the greatest fears of all is the fear of sharks, and many people avoid swimming in the ocean because of this illogical fear.
However, almost all species of sharks are totally harmless, and even the great white is a relatively timid animal that does not normally consider humans as prey. The fear is soon replaced by reverence when you see these graceful fish swimming through the forest, giving birth and sleeping in their caves.
