Shark Week Is Back And It’s Weirder Than Ever

One of the year’s best weeks of TV, Shark Week, kicks off soon and to celebrate, the Discovery Channel created this strangely epic 30-second spot. The ad features a man riding on two sharks as he throws chum from his satchel-like bucket into the air. There’s a mermaid resting seductively at his feet and a slew of jumping sharks. What more could you possibly want? This year’s Shark Week begins August 10.

Shark Week Countdown Challenge Day 1: The megamouth shark!
The megamouth shark is one of my favourite species of shark. Since they were first discovered in 1976, this species has been observed less than 60 times! Even so, it is believed that this is a species that is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical waters.
The megamouth shark is a filter feeder, similar to the whale shark and the basking shark. They swim with their mouth agape, and ingest plankton, jellyfish, and other small marine organisms.
This is a deep sea animal, however, recent evidence suggests that these animals may come near the surface in the night to feed. They may also have bio-luminescent tissues around part of their mouth to attract their prey.
I find animals like the megamouth so fascinating. We know so little about them, despite their massive size! 5 meters long or more!

If you love Shark Week (as I do), it’s worth telling Discovery what you think!
