A Serious Case Of Galeophobia

It's not  a fear of high winds.  Galeophobia is actually the fear of sharks.  I'm not sure I've shared this, but I fear sharks. 

I don't wish sharks any harm, it's just ai don't want to play in the same sandbox they play in.  They seem sort of unforgiving. 

In any case, I'm not sure how I feel about this new photo of a shark eating another shark.  On one hand, it's one less shark that I have to deal with.  On the other hand, if this shark eats other sharks, who's to say it's not strong enough to walk out of the ocean some day and come knocking on my door?

 


This photo is courtesy of Tom Mannering and was taken in Australia off the Great Barrier Reef, while conducting a fish census.  What you see is a Wobbegong Shark with it's mouth wrapped around a Bamboo Shark.
