We will get insight on what they like to eat and what they are afraid of. You will get to know them as individuals, not just the blank eyed killing machines they are made out to be.

• 10 Deadliest Sharks (Premieres August 5th and 7th at 8pm) – This oldie but goodie originally premiered on Shark Week back in 2006. Sharks are some of the most feared creatures in the oceans, but only some live up to the fear because most sharks would never attack a human. From bull sharks to great whites this episode explains who is dangerous and who is not, and where they rank from one to ten.
