Bad Time For A Swim: Video Of 100's Of Sharks Migrating

March 27, 2015

This is a video taken from an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico of hundreds of sharks migrating north into Louisiana waters. It's believed the sharks are either blacktip or spinner sharks, neither of which pose a significant risk to humans. There have only been about 55 documented attacks in total by both species (15 of which were provoked), only one of which was fatal. Still, you wouldn't find me jumping in there as soon as the lifeguard blew the whistle for adult swim. *removing arm floaties* Screw it, I'm hitting up the snack-bar. "This is an oil rig, not a public swimming pool -- there is no snack bar." Screw it, I'm gonna bribe the helicopter pilot with a handy to fly me back to dry land.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Alex, who would have lassoed all those sharks then ridden them around the ocean in a shark-drawn water chariot.

    Oh this is just the bi-centennial gathering of tribes. Every tribe gathers here for the Shark Games. This is the one time that shark tribes don't fight one another, instead their chieftains call a peace and they celebrate a gladiator style games event, in this particular video you can see many such fights taking place, as marked by the sharks that swim in an O (this signifies the border of the fight area.)
