Sharks are Scary, especially when you get a waring if one where you are and when one almost bit off my arm. I was having the time of my life when suddenley a Great White came swimming up. I was not that far away from land, probably a mile from land. I got pasted the waves and this shark swam up to my friends and I. In my head the Jaws music was playing cause all we could see was the fin. When we were swimming away, toward land, the shark kept getting closer and closer, and the shark bit my arm, and made me get stiches. To this day on I am still terrifed of going in a ocean.😨
