Sharks are one of the most deadliest creatures in the water, and easily the most popular underwater species out there. Movies and other venues of entertainment have depicted the dangerous creatures in a variety of ways. Jaws and Deep Blue Sea were sea thrillers that generated into box office jackpots. Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” is one of the highest-rated weeks annually for the network. There have also been some incredible real-life stories about sharks. Here were some of the best that we found.
