We won’t lie, we’re not the biggest fans of sharks. It’s nothing personal – we’re sure they’re great. It’s just that ever since we saw Steven Spielberg’s hit film Jaws, we’re, well, afraid of them. And, can’t help but hear “ta-dam, ta-dam” every time we step foot into the sea. It’s a problem, really.

Our fear aside, Shark Week –Discovery Channel’s hit series dedicated to the fierce creatures premieres its 30th season tomorrow (July 23) with a lineup that includes unprecedented access to some of the most exotic areas in the world, celebrity appearances – Bear Grylls and WWE superstar Ronda Rousey are two of the big names on the bill, and, of course, tons of shark-based knowledge and facts.

All the “sharks” from Shark Tank – the show that sees hundreds of hopefuls pitch their ideas in the hopes of getting financial aid from one of the millionaires on the panel, will be joining in on the fun too.

In celebration of the milestone, we along with our friends at Discovery, have shortlisted 30 great facts about the stunning and in most cases misunderstood sea creatures.
