20 Facts About Sharks in Movies & TV To Sink Our Teeth Into

If you don’t like sharks, we don’t know what to tell you. The Internet digs them. Who can blame The Internet? Sharks are sleek, toothy killing machines on one hand, but can be the fearsome-yet-cute little thing on the other. Sharks and pop culture go together like robots and toy collecting.

With Shark Week and all the other nature shows out there, you may think you know sharks. You probably swim over to shark content as quickly as sharks swim over to fresh chum in the water.
