I'm not serious but they scare me shitless.
I wouldn't really want them all to die, just wish there was a way (beside never going near an ocean) to make sure I never see one in real life lol.

If I was swimming in the ocean and a marine mammal or sea turtle came swimming by me, I can't honestly say that I wouldn't touch it. I wouldn't ride it, but I would more than likely reach out and touch it if it wasn't acting hostile or scared.

Baby sea turtles like oreos. My brother and I helped some marine people help a bunch of turtles in the ocean in NC or SC.



Me too to the

They like oreos? Aw, lol. :)

Back in like 2005 or 2006 I went to Mexico Beach and found a shark about as long as my leg. I don't know what kind it was, but it was really chill, so I kept swimming with it nearby. That was one of the most awesome things I've ever experienced.
I told my parents when I decided to get out of the water. Yeah....They totally didn't share my enthusiasm. :?

That's the thing. I know with the really big ones like blue whales, being near something that big? Freaking creepy plus it could probably accidentally swallow me whole! My family jokes around and if I'm going to the beach they call me Jonah!
Which I do not find funny. They was a small family of them actually spotted at a local beach here abnormally close to shore this summer.
And then ones like Orchas seem all nice and friendly but they don't call em killer whales for nothing! The whole thing is totally irrational cause its to the point where I can't even watch them on tv or see pics of them.

If it was about as long as your leg and near you it was probably a sand shark. I've seam with those before. And once near a tiger shark (I think that was the bread, it was in open waters so I wasn't touching it close) in sc when I lived there. That's what makes my fear even more ridiculous, like wtf Jenna? Haha

My favorite animal is a whale shark. I would love to scuba dive and hitch a ride on one. I saw a diver do that on a documentary once.

I think whale sharks are the most tolerable for me. Maybe because I find th pretty? Idk but sometimes I google image search different whale breeds and what not to try and overcome at least that part of my fear and I can actually watch videos of whale sharks. But I can't even look at a pic of a blue whale for more then 3 seconds!

I'm reading that sand sharks like to swim close to the bottom. That's what the shark I saw was doing, it was cruising slowly along the bottom sand. It was about 6 feet deep water.

Yeah sounds about right. There are a lot of them here. We catch at least 5 every summer while fishing but we always release. Fishing for sharks isn't easy. If you don't cut off there heads right away they piss everywhere. Idk why but its gross haha.
