Fatality

ARE ALL ATTACKS FATAL?

Most shark attacks are not fatal, however, there are a percentage of attacks that are fatal. There are only 4 sharks who consistently attack people: The Great White, The Tiger, The Bull, and The Oceanic White Tip. There are, however, other large sharks that have attacked humans, and can potentially dangerous. 

When most sharks attack, the first bite is usually a "tester." Like most people, when sampling food, they bite once, revel in the taste, and then decide whether or not to continue... with most sharks, sampling occurs as well. The trouble is, with the sampling of a Great White or other larger predatory sharks, the first bite is so massive or severe that many people die from their injuries, and do not actually die from being consumed. A lot of fatalities can be attributed to people bleeding to death or dying from shock.
