Salt Water Superheroes

Exploding squid?!? Lobsters freezing everything in their paths? What can be done? Call in the Great Whites, the bomb squad of the seas…

Great Whites hold key place in ecosystem; without predator, other species would explode. Also, lobster freezing.

… it’s fun to willfully misinterpret headlines. It’s more fun to read Wanda Curtis’ article about Great White sharks in northern waters. I had no idea that most humans survive the attacks because the sharks back off after an initial bite to wait for prey to bleed, giving people time to get help.

It’s even more fun to follow the article’s link and visit the tracking app for Great Whites tagged by the scientific OCEARCH expedition. Here again, we must note, the danger of exploding squid is noted. You have been warned.
