It’s not a well known fact,but the Oceanic Whitetip has killed more people than all other species combined due to the fact that it is first on the scene when there has been a disaster at see…google USS Indianapolis to see what I mean.Famed oceanographic researcher Jacques Cousteau described the oceanic whitetip as “the most dangerous of all sharks”.[13] Despite the greater notoriety of the great white shark and other sharks habitually found nearer the shore, the oceanic whitetip is responsible for more fatal attacks on humans than all other species combined, as a result of predation on survivors of shipwrecks or downed aircraft.[1][14] Such incidents are not included in common shark-attack indices for the 20th and 21st centuries, and as a result of this, the oceanic whitetip does not have the highest number of recorded incidents.[15] [16] Nonetheless, incidents involving the oceanic whitetip total in the thousands worldwide,[16] with one incident alone, the torpedoing of USS Indianapolis on 30 July 1945, alleged to have accounting for 600 to 800 sailors..In short,don’t be on board a ship that sinks in the open ocean far from rescue lol!!
