  3. 3. 1975 movie Jaws grossed $260 million and decimated any respect people had for Great White Sharks. <br />Jaws was a catastrophe for Great Whites. It created unprecedented shark-attack hysteria and transformed what most people regarded as some "obscure ocean dweller" into "a man- eating monster with a lust for wanton killing". <br />Sharks are in extreme danger of becoming extinct due to mans impact on the oceanic environment, as well as unnecessary killing of all sharks & overfishing.<br />The mechanical model used for the “Jaws” thrillers<br />Can you handle<br /> the fear?<br />
