The breaking news in all of this should be to sharks. Alerting the sharks that there are humans are splashing around the ocean. Why is it that every time a shark bites a human that it is dubbed an attack?
I am the outdoor guy here at KFYi. I love being outdoors in the forest, in the desert, and in the ocean. I know when I am in in any of those places, I am an Eco Tourist.
An Eco tourist is a species that is outside of their ecosystem. That species is no longer the Apex predator or top of the food chain.
When I go into the forest I know I’m in the bear's house. When I’m on the desert I know I’m in the rattlesnake's house. And let’s be honest the Cholla cactus' house. I swear they’re alive and I hate them. And when I am in the ocean I understand that I am in the shark's house.
Let me put it this way, if bacon walked into my house I would bite it. If I go into a sharks house on a surfboard dressing up as their favorite meal, a sea lion, the shark is probably gonna want to take a bike.
Jaws is what Jaws was, fiction. Sharks do not attack humans. Sharks bite humans when they represent their food.
I know I know, I’m going to get a lot of push back because everyone in Arizona vacations in San Diego. I’m not trying to scare you out of the ocean because your likelihood of getting an exploratory bite from a shark are millions to one. But if you get stung by a jellyfish don’t call it a jellyfish attack you ran into a jellyfish.
Have fun out there and be safe
