GRAB AHOLD! If a shark sinks its teeth into your arms during a shark attack, your best bet is to latch on to the shark. Sharks like to whip their prey around in order to break off chunks of meat, so the closer you stay to the shark, the better your chance of keeping your limb. USE YOUR MAGNETIC PERSONALITY 1 It's possible that shark repellents could come from an unlikely 2 source: magnets. Magnets in the water can interfere with a shark's electroreception. Don't just strap on some magnets and head to the beach, though sharks have to get very close to the magnets before they're affected. lemorely Created by -shark.htm
