Sharks don’t bite…hard

At least so say smart scientific-type people.

Don't be fooled by the sharp teeth.

Don't be fooled by the sharp teeth.

Sharks have wimpy bites for their size and can crunch through their prey only because they have very sharp teeth — and because they can grow to be so big, researchers reported Tuesday.

Their studies of shark jaws show that lions or tigers win hands down when it comes to jaw strength — but sharks prevail in the water because of their wide jaw size.

Okay, so…if I ever find any aquatic tigers, I will be seriously afraid.  But as long as we’re only talking about huge sharks with very sharp teeth, we’re fine.  Pray they do not getting any fricking laser beams attached to their heads…
