Are you watching Shark Week on Discovery Channel? It kicked off tonight with a great program called Jaws Comes Home. That title sounds a little scary, doesn’t it? But, it’s about a passionate shark expert and U.S. Fisheries scientist named Greg Skomal who loves Great White Sharks and is trying to learn more about their journeys up and down the east coast of North America. His work is exciting (although a little scary at times!), and the program includes incredible footage of these massive fish shot by brave underwater camera crews.

But are all sharks really dangerous or is JAWS just a scary movie that is not really factual? That’s why I’ve written several books about sharks: to separate shark facts from shark fiction.

You can tune in to Discovery Channel this week and learn lots of shark facts for yourself. Happy Shark Week!
