China is toxic...disappointing to see my country and so many others on that list that feed the insatiable and criminal appetite of these mongrel Chinese. Thank you

I would agree with Lucille P. I think sharks are more afraid of humans than we should be of them! I mean, sharks have killed 5 humans in TEN years while humans have killed 8333 sharks every HOUR! Craziness!
