What three species of sharks are responsible for the most attacks on humans?
- Great White, Hammerhead, Tiger
- Tiger, Bull, Whale shark
- Blue, Great White, Hammerhead
- Bull, Tiger, Great White
Great white sharks are responsible for the highest number of attacks on humans, totaling 314 recorded unprovoked attacks. The tiger shark follows with 111 attacks, and the bull shark has recorded an even 100. No other species has more than 29. Still, your odds of being attacked by a shark are extremely low. Only 1 in nearly 4 million people meet their end in the jaws of a shark--you're far more likely to be killed by lightning. Nevertheless, decrease your odds even more by avoiding swimming in murky water or at dawn and dusk--that's prime feeding time for these species.
