Shark Week is On!

.


It's that great time of year again, when sharks rule.


For 26 years Shark Week has been going strong, and with all the competition from other Shark related programs (i.e. Sharknado) Discovery Channel is steping up their game.

First thing they are doing is Shark After Dark, which is a late-night talk show that will air each evening during Shark Week 2013, discussing all things shark-related and highlighting favorite moments from Shark Week.
Next thing they have is Shark Cam, which is a robot submarine used to track sharks in a new way. The premiere special Return of Jaws will include footage of Shark Cam following great whites living and hunting off Cape Cod.

Shark attacks have been increasing in number, but surprisingly shark numbers are at an all-time low due to the shark-finning trade. Could there be a connection between the two?

Through the explosion of amazing footage they captured and some crazy experiments, they’ll test several theories to find out if the 100 million sharks being killed every year could potentially lead to us into a Sharkpocalypse.
