I don't think I'd say, "Come here, little one. I fight for sharks. May I pet you."

No, I don't think so.

Yep, it's generally the younger sharks that are curious. He's in the shark's back yard.

One never knows what one will find when leaving land. That makes some people land lubbers, never setting foot into the watery wonders of the world.

Yes, it's the shark's turf but even another animal will try swimming...woof...or paddle boarding (humans are still in the animal kingdom) or snorkelling (oh, oh you may be done as dinner there if meeting sharks!)

Even when it is their turf, one has seen videos of all things, a mother duck and her ducklings swimming, a blue heron watching from the rock, then flying over and eating a duckling...instead of a fish. It can be dangerous out there even for those whose natural element is water.

well, if you swim in the ocean, be prepared to encounter it's inhabitants.
