The 'Anatomy of a Shark Attack' is a cumulative geographic report on what your chances of being attacked by a shark really are. As one of the most feared creatures of the sea, sharks have long been the victim of folklore and blockbuster hit movies; but how much of that is really true?
Not a whole lot as it turns out. But that doesn't mean that sharks aren't a real threat when entering the water. Though your chances of an actual encounter are 1 in 11.5 million, and your odds of a fatal attack are even less (1 in 570 million), the "fun facts" that indicate that sharks can attack in 2-3 feet of water is worrisome.
Offering precautions and information on actual attacks, the 'Anatomy of a Shark Attack' infograph is a comprehensive overview on what to avoid next time you hit the beach.
