Mark,

YOU were the one who first waved his credentials around in our exchanges, I just responded in kind. Can I help it if your BS from an unaccredited bible college didn't stack up?

As for this thread, I was asked about the source of my information about sharks, and I simply responded that I'm a marine biologist. I've taught marine-related courses for more than two decades now. One of the first things one finds when teaching such courses, particularly introductory and survey courses, is that most of the students sign-up because they want to know about marine mammals, sharks, and turtles -- they just tolerate most of the rest of the material (why they don't sign-up to hear my scintillating hydrogen bonding lectures is beyond me ). So, I include in my mammal/shark/turtle lectures neat little facts that help grab the students' attention (e.g., how dangerous, or not-so-dangerous, sharks really are). One of the tidbits students always want to know is, "Just what is the most dangerous shark?" And every time put that particular lecture together, I update the numbers with info from various sources (such as HERE). But, I always use the caveat that identifying a shark during an attack is a difficult task, at best, and that many attacks are undoubtedly misattributed to White Sharks simply because of their (well-deserved) reputation. That said, given the rather large margin between White Sharks and the next two species with the most attributed attack it's a bit difficult to believe that their "#1 ranking" is in much danger.

Finally, as for Halstead, read the link I supplied (and it is the same Bruce W. Halstead), then tell me how his scholarship isn't "sketchy" (at best). OR, you can just stay true to form and call me more names...your choice.

Re: Great White spotted near Key West

I saw Jaws when it came out 3 times.That summer sailing to Maine I saw LOTS of Sharks, mostly small Blues,but one huge thresher shark, judging from the Long upper tail fin.In Rockland I saw a boat similer to the Orca in the movie.I asked the guy on it if they ever caught sharks,He said it was what they mostly harpooned those days, the occasional swordfish.Then He asked me in a thick Maine accent if I had just seen 'that movie'.I said I had,"All hollywood BS" he said"Shaahks dont jump up on bo-atts".

I don't interview marine biologists, I am a marine biologist. If you can't comprehend the difference, there is no need to continue this discussion.

BTW, Bruce Halstead has a very mixed reputation among actual marine biologists (and that's putting it mildly). He wrote some quite popular books, but is scholarship was always pretty sketchy. It was even sketchier in his biomedical "stuff" (see here).

Re: Great White spotted near Key West

I saw a program a few years ago on the bull shark. It was stated that the males had the highest measured testosterone level of any animal ever recorded, including bull elephants when in musth and 17 y/o male humans (;-D), thus explaining their extremely aggressive nature.
I love how it gets mentioned how sharks don't like human flavor. Who cares? The sample spoon taste they take is devastating anyway.

Re: Great White spotted near Key West

Great Whites are by far the most scariest but, Tigers, Bulls and OWT by far pose the most danger and are the most deadliest simply by the nature of their hunting tactics.

That being said, what a beautiful fish they be
