Sharks are more than movie monsters or a lifeguard's nightmare. They're one of the most interesting creatures on this planet, and scientists constantly discover new shark facts. They're so intriguing that they have an entire week to themselves that has captured millions of people's attention. Some people adore sharks for their sleek looks and remarkable strength, while others think of them as cute sea kittens. Regardless of your reasons for learning about sharks, it's time to put your knowledge to the test. Did you grab your knowledge from "Sharknado," or will you be an expert to rival the best shark biologists?

Did you know?

Shark attacks are quite uncommon

If you only knew about sharks from pop culture and movies, you'd think they're the worst sea monsters imaginable. However, shark attacks are far rarer than most people realize. Since official record-keeping began in the early 1500s, there have been fewer than a thousand confirmed attacks. In 2021, there were only 73 reported and verified unprovoked shark attacks, which fits with a five-year average of 72 attacks annually. The vast majority of the attacks occurred in areas with larger, more violent shark species and many tourists and people enjoying activities like surfing.
