INFOGRAPHIC: ‘Jaw’-some Shark Week Social Stats

People LOVED the S*** Out of #SharkWeek!

Maybe LOVED isn’t the right word? Maybe it should be “People Are Scared S***-Less of Sharks?” After all, 2015 has been a huge year for Shark attacks in the United States, especially along the Atlantic Coast. It’s also a possibility the popularity of #SharkWeek stems from our fascination with the majestic animals. According to ‘Sharkopedia’, Sharks appeared almost 200 MILLION years before the first dinosaurs. That’s a long time for a species and is a clear testament to the evolution of one of the world’s oldest lifeforms.
