5 Types Of Sharks Responsible For Human Attacks

Sharks may not have been created to eat mankind, but that has not stopped them from doing so throughout history. Some sharks won’t bother people, and actually enjoy being around divers and those swimming in the water. However, there are some species of sharks that are highly aggressive, which means they have been known to attack and kill humans on more than one occasion. Sharks tend to attack when they mistake a person for a seal, or when provoked. Here are the five ten types of sharks known for attacking people.

5. Nurse Shark

4. Sand Tiger
