Shark Week is Here on the Discovery Channel

Whale Shark Diving - Exmouth, Western Australia - Ningaloo Reef - 1995 - ExoticAnimalLover.comThat’s right…For one full week, the Discovery Channel brings to you Shark Week!

In fact, it’s the 25th Anniversary of Shark Week…Can you imagine that?

Whether you’re in love with great whites, hammerheads, whale sharks, nurse sharks or any other shark in between, you’ll get an eye- and earful of some of the most amazing underwater cinematography ever created to show you exactly what’s going on with these fierce survivors in the deep, blue ocean.

Living dinosaurs, sharks are some of the oldest species of animals on the planet.

As the top of the food chain in their marine world, sharks rule the oceans they roam, but don’t think they’re completely safe.

Humans are sharks worst enemy, simply by polluting their environment and making the oceans a more dangerous place for them to live with recreational water craft dangers to boot.

As their food supply is affected by pollution and human interference, so is their diet affected, and in turn, their numbers have plunged over recent years.

Be sure to watch some shows on Shark Week to develop a healthy appreciation for these huge fish.


I hope you enjoy this Shark post on Exotic Animal Lover. Until next time…

Live Exotically!

    Have any of you heard of PETA’s campaign to free Mali, the lone elephant at the decrepit and barren Manila Zoo? The president of the Philippines recently issued a directive stating that she should be transferred to a sanctuary, and PETA are working to gather public support behind the initiative and expedite her transfer. Please sign this petition to give Mali a second chance at life!
