The shark is a beautiful creature and has an unfair reputation as a ferocious animal that rules the clear blue waters.

Sharks teach us to move forward, pursue our goals and aspirations, and continue to chase our dreams (or prey…) without giving up. They taught us to be proactive in our lives and persevere in pursuing our dreams.

It is true that sharks are among the most dangerous creatures that roam the deep blue ocean. With tremendous speed and strength, they are known as formidable predators. Sharks are mobile and can easily reach prey that is trying to escape. However, they are solitary creatures that would rather roam peacefully by themselves, so being in contact with humans can disturb their tranquility. After all, the ocean is their home, so humans are the trespassers.
