Deep Diving With Some Shark Facts

It's the beginning of Spooktober and what's spookier than creatures of the deep sea? So much is unknown and the information we do know can be just as scary as the unknown! 

Sharks. If someone tells you, while in shark-infested waters, that they aren't afraid of sharks... they're definitely lying to you. Sharks are terrifying! Yes, they're also amazing and very important to the balance of the ecosystem but that doesn't change the fact that they are essentially dinosaurs. They've got this haunting movement and look, those black eyes... and all those teeth! 

As part of our Spooktober special, we bring to you 25 shark facts that are pretty unnerving. Enjoy!

Classic Meme Rewind: 'Shy Shark'

Ahh, meme-ories. Does anyone remember this classic meme, "The Shy Shark?"

It's no secret that a majority of us are terrified of the giant fish, regardless of the classic film "Jaws". I mean, a prehistoric ancient fish lurking in the water, with just it's fin popping up now and then? It's a terrifying image and anyone who says otherwise is flat out lying to you. 

That's why the 'Shy Shark' makes us so happy. With its confused and oddly adorable expression, for a moment, we aren't as afraid as we usually are.

New Study Reveals Grey Reef Sharks Form Long-Lasting 'Friendships'

Sharks who form long-lasting friendships with one another? That's actually really cute.

According to a team of scientists, in Florida, they have recently discovered that grey reef sharks form long-lasting relationships with one another. Yannis Papastamatiou, a member of the team studying this phenomenon, said "We don't think of sharks as social animals, but they do have social groups."

The grey reef sharks are large-eyed sharks who roam the Pacific and Indian ocean. They are known to be aggressive nocturnal predators but it turns out they have a soft side when it comes to other grey reef sharks.

Daily Snarky Conversations Between Sharks And Other Sea Creatures (Comics)

July 14th is a shark awareness day. 

On this day, we all acknowledge the sad fact that these magnificent creatures are more threatened by people than we are by sharks. The worldwide demand for shark-fin soup, shark-tooth medallions, and a false sense of security on beaches everywhere, all combine to leave sharks persecuted and endangered, with millions of them being killed each year. 

Whilst no-one is suggesting we go out and hug a Great White on this day, it's the least we can do to respect these wonderful creatures and let them be. 

The Life of Sharks is a webcomic that features real facts about sharks along with witty humor, created by Christian Talbot (the writer) and Sophie Hodge (the illustrator). The talented duo is expert in putting funny words into the mouths of these fish that are perceived to be cold-hearted killers but are discovered here as cool and funny. We thought it's a great way to appreciate sharks.

Disney Princesses Reimagined As Cats Reimagined As Sharks

Well, it's finally happened. We've all gone crazy. 

The whole 'reimagined Disney Princesses' is extremely overdone to the point of exhaustion. You say to yourself, there's no way they can be reimagined into something remotely interesting anymore. But if there's a will, there's a way! 

Disney Princesses reimagined as cats reimagined as sharks... Oh, and they're not princesses at all. Honestly, we love this fresh take of the whole 'reimagined' palooza. 

Introducing "Shark Cats" by the talented Brynn Metheney!  "It was a normal day when I grabbed my sketchpad and began to doodle. What came out were scribbles of a horrible little creature: the Shark Cat. The initial design was based on the thresher shark. I found that the short face and extremely large eyes worked well with the "cat aesthetic". Shark Cats have been featured all over the internet and continue to bring joy and terror to those who stumble across them. "

Ancient Old Shark Discovered, Hilarity Ensues on Twitter

A shark was recently discovered in the Arctic Ocean. Not just any regular shark, oh no, this shark discovered was found to be 392-years-old. 

Let's think about that for a second. 

Three-hundred and ninety-two years old. 

And while researching this shark, it turns out ANOTHER shark was discovered in 2019, in the Northern Atlantic, that scientists have reason to believe it was born as early as 1505. That means, this Greenland shark was born before Shakespeare and is -- wait for it -- FIVE-HUNDRED AND TWELVE years old! 

The Greenland shark could very well be the world oldest living vertebrate. But we're here to talk about the 392-year-old shark that caused the follow entertaining Twitter thread.

All we can take away from this is that sharks are still terrifying but kinda sorta incredible... don't you think?

35 Hilarious Memes Guaranteed To Make You Laugh

Meme madness!  

There is really no way of avoiding memes online these days. They've become the predominant form of mass communication, they are THE way of joining the online conversation, and nothing is coming along to replace them. There are memes online that are inappropriate, there are memes online targeted to be offensive, and there are memes online targeted to put you on a better mood. This doesn't even take into account the memes that friends share with each other in DMs or manually, by calling out their friends name and having them come over to see it on their phone. Memes are a cultural phenomena that we love, and have no doubt that is here to stay for a long, long time, even if the average new meme "dies" after like a week on Reddit
