#Florida #SharkAttacks #Shark Of 88 unprovoked shark bites that the Florida Museum of Natural History documented around the globe last year, more than one third took place along the shores of Florida, the shark attack capital of the world. But the vast majority of those attacks were on southern beaches between Cape Canaveral and Miami. Shark encounters are relatively rare farther up Florida's Atlantic coastline and are almost unheard of in northernmost Nassau County. Or so they were before Friday afternoon -- when consecutive attacks sent two people to the hospital and shut down Fernandina Beach, just south of the Georgia border about 25 miles northeast of Jacksonville. "I was in two feet of water or less, laying on my stomach," the first victim, Dustin Theobald, 30, told News 4 Jax from his hospital bed. Theobald said he had brought his 8-year-old to the beach and was watching the boy play in the surf when "when I felt something grab onto my foot and pull." He felt no pain, yet. He reached back to feel what he now believes to a be a nurse shark or a blacktip shark, judging from the gouges it left in his foot. "He was probably four or five feet," Theobald said. "When I did that, he shook twice, then released and left." An onlooker told First Coast News that she watched Theobald stumble and hop to dry land on one foot, screaming: "I got bit! I got bit! Get out!" "He barely made it out of the water," another witness, Mike Webb, told the outlet. "He laid down at the lifeguard stand and they just went to wrapping and gauzing. His left foot was -- from what he said was, he could see the bone on the top and the bottom." Theobald said he may have tendon damage along with four-inch lacerations on both sides of his foot. And no sooner had an ambulance arrived at the beach to collect him than a second swimmer was attacked less than two miles down the coast, the City of Fernandina Beach wrote in a statement. A 17-year-old boy was bitten no more than five minutes after Theobald, First Coast News reported. And though he, too, is expected to recover, the reports caused authorities to evacuate all swimmers out of the water along the beach.

Today is Shark Awareness Day, which brings awareness to the importance of sharks to the ecosystems in our world’s oceans. Did you know that about 100 million sharks are killed each year, but there is only an average of 19 shark attacks in the U.S. each year? Humans pose more of a threat to sharks than sharks do to humans. Now, many species of sharks are in danger of going extinct. Help bring awareness by spreading the word! . . . . #k2summit #k2thesummit #roofing #roofinglife #construction #rooftop #roofer #contractor #remodeling #remodel #renovation #reroofing #constructionwork #roofconstruction #qualityroofing #industrialroofing #commercialroofing #shark #sharks #sharkawarenessday #sharksarefriends #sharksarefriendsnotfood #sharkattack #sharkattacks

Some perspective on “dangerous” animals 🦈 Sharks are so misunderstood 😢 Over 200 million are killed by humans every year - who is really more dangerous? #education #conservation #shark #sharksarefriends #sharkattacks #saveoursharks #ocean #marine #deadlyanimals #animals #saynotosharknets #noculling #sharks #love

One of the things I love doing, is sending a little piece of the #DIA to people I care about. These #postcards have all of the work’s information and reference numbers on the back for the recipients to indulge at home online. These are some of my favorite works. #femaleheroes with a beheaded enemy in tote, #macabre #ivory , to #ancient #babylonian #creatures (hello #mušḫuššu ), to #cats of #ancientegypt to darkly spirited #oilpaintings and #sharkattacks , #withlove #frommetoyou share the #detroitinstituteofarts . #Handmaids #mythology #religion #finearts #ivorycarvings

🦈 Wave Wednesday . . . I ain’t SURFIN that break anytime soon, just sayin’ ( PHOTO cred: surf pal Jim @jamesdynajim ) ( Jim said the whole ‘vibe’ WEIRD! ) Surf Beach, place of the ‘every 2 yr’ shark attacks, 2008, 2010, 2012, & 2014. Some researchers believe it’s the same great white but DNA recovery does not show that. Sharks will return to the same area same spots nearly on the same days. WOULD U GO OUT?

⠀ .⠀ As tiger sharks grow, their diet begins to shift (i.e, - the larger you are; the more options you have). When they are small, they mainly eat fish and other small animals. But, as they grow, their menu begins to expand. With larger jaws, they are able to consume larger vertebrate likes turtles and marine mammals. ⠀ ⠀ Has your diet changed with age?⠀ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖⠀ #sharks #shark #prey #predator #predators #animal #animals #animalattack #blessedbynature #tutrle #seaturtle #florida #marinebiology #marinebiologyshots #fishing #tiger #tigershark #sharkdiver #sharkdiving #miami #southbeach #tigersharks #sharkattack #sharkattacks #discovernature #amazing_nature #allnatureshots #sharkweek #fishing #sharkfishing

Credit to from @sharkgirlmadison - Sharks are dangerous Sharks hurt people Sharks can kill people Acknowledging that is not going to hurt our conservation message. Denying it is going to hurt our chances of improving people’s interactions with sharks.

This has to be one of the biggest #BAMF I’ve ever met! Meet @pauldegelder , the host of @sharkweek , the author of “No Time For Fear”, and a shark attack survivor. Paul was attacked by a bull shark in Sydney, Australia where he was working as a military diver and now dedicated his life to protecting sharks and other sea life and is also a big advocate for plant based eating. Check out my interview with him on my YouTube channel (link in bio)!

In 2015, there were 98 recorded #sharkattacks world-wide, 6 of those attacks being fatal.  It is conservatively estimated that humans kill over 100 million sharks per year, mainly by shark finning. 🦈 My question is: if #sharks had cable, would they watch "human week"? #sharkcostume by Miss Alexis #sharkmakeup by @amandarrwalker #BOSSentart #gogo #gogodancer #gogolife #gogocollective #gogoworld #wegogo #gogogirl #gogirl #dancer #performer #costumedesign #costumes #lifeofagogo #aznightlife #sharkweek #sharkhoodie #sexyshark
