Sharks are considered living fossils because, from an evolutionary standpoint, these things haven't really changed much in millions of years. They haven't needed to. The design of the shark is perfect for what it needs to do - swim around and eat stuff. We should all be so lucky. Imagine living your best life in a pool with an endless supply of burritos. That's essentially how it works for a shark. And you also get to be at the top of the food chain, so it's not like a lot of other people are stealing those burritos from you. If humans leave them alone, sharks get to have a pretty enviable life in a lot of parts of the world, and that's kind of awesome.
On some level, we recognize how cool life is for a shark, and that's why we're fascinated by them. We make "Shark Week" and "Jaws" and "The Meg" because sharks represent primal hunger made brutally real. Shark teeth come from the dark depths and devour quickly. That's a shark, and it scares us sometimes, but it's just because we're not looking at it right. Sharks aren't evil. They're just hangry, hangry fish. And who can't relate to that? Ever wonder what kind of shark you became when you get that super hunger? Let's find out!
