Every year the first week of August truly bites.  No, it’s not because of the unbearable heat.  It’s because it’s Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.  Since many of my friends feel the same way, I have decided to celebrate these amazing creatures with a Shark Week t-shirt.   Here is something that I didn’t realize though…they have been running this for over twenty years.  Apparently, my friends and I aren’t the only fans!

Whether you like Hammerhead sharks or are only impressed by Great Whites, Discovery Channel’s Shark Week will have you at the edge of your seat and this tee will remind you of every heart-pounding moment.  Here are my five favorite shark facts that I’ve learned from the show.

  1. What do the Virgin Mary and sharks have in common?  No, it’s not a joke so you don’t need to look for a punch line.  There are a few documented cases of a female shark reproducing without any male contact.  This is called parthenogenesis.
  2. Shark skeletons are made of cartilage not bone.  After the animal dies, everything decomposes in the salty water except its teeth.
  3. Although they start out whitish, souvenir shark teeth are often brown, gray or black in color.  They change colors because of the silica and calcite sediments soaked up from the sand.
  4. Oceans aren’t the only place you can encounter sharks.  Bull sharks like freshwater and have been spotted in rivers and bays.
  5. Goblin sharks live in water approximately 4,265 feet deep.

Catch your Shark Week t-shirt today and spread around your new shark facts.  Tell everyone that you captured a few of the deadly creatures…on your DVR, because you have it set to record the terrifying Discovery Channel TV show, so that you can live every week like it’s Shark Week.  :::Jaws theme song:::
