Anybody who thinks that Sharks are ruthless killers of humans (especially in Australia given the current Great White controversy) – your position is greatly incorrect. Here’s some things you’re more likely to be killed by than any of the Selachimorphs – of which there is about 360 extant species, only 4 of which are classified as “presenting viable danger to humans” – to put it into perspective: You are, on average, over 180 times more likely to be killed by a Hippopotamus than you are to be by a Shark. You are around 375 times more likely to be killed by having a crash sending a text message whilst in charge of a vehicle than you are to be by a Shark. Bear in mind, texting has only existed in its current form since around 1992. You are very nearly 38 times more likely to be killed by misadventure during autoerotic asphyxiation than you are to be by a Shark. You are over 6 times more likely to be killed by an icicle falling and impaling you in Russia alone than you are to be by a Shark anywhere globally. You are over 28 times more likely to be killed by the impact of falling out of your own bed than you are to be by a Shark. You are around twice as likely to be killed by Ants than you are by a Shark. You are approximately as likely to be killed by a vending machine as you are by a Shark. You are around twice as likely to be killed by a dog in the United States than you are by a Shark anywhere in the world. You are more than twice as likely to be killed by a Jellyfish on a holiday to the Philippines than you are by a Shark anywhere in the world. You are around 625 times more likely to be killed by a lightning strike than you are by a Shark. You are around 53 times more likely to be killed by a Volcano eruption than you are by a Shark. You are more likely to be killed playing high school football in the United States than you are by a Shark anywhere on the planet. And my personal favourite — you are more likely to be killed by your own or somebody else’s Christmas tree than you are to be by a Shark. This statistic only takes into account the US national average – it is not a global figure as Shark fatalities are. This is working on a basis of 16 average fatalities annually by Shark attack – the true figure is actually much smaller than this. The total number of people killed by any of the Shark species since 1580 is 471 – more people are killed as a result of gang violence in the United States in the space of two weeks. By comparison, we kill hundreds of millions of them annually and live in a perpetual state of fear any time the sea enters our collective consciousness. Who, then, is the irrational and horrible killer? If anything, we’re the ones who need to be at account.
