There aren't too many things that could ruin a day at the beach. Well, there are a few: jellyfish, a bad case of sunburn, and of course a shark attack. <Read this with that catchy Jaws theme in your mind - or order it below if you have somehow forgotten it.>
Sharks are out there, my friend, and they're hungry for tasty live snacks. So do yourself a favor and pay attention to the water. Heed any warnings or alerts, and for God's sake don't swim alone between sandbars. See more helpful tips below; the life you save may be your own!
Look on the bright side:
- Hey - sharks need to eat, too! At least you'll have the consolation of knowing that you made one tasty appetizer.
- A lot of people do survive.
- Prosthetics have come a really long way in the last few years.

Tips from the trenches:
- Um, stay out of the water if you're bleeding.
- Avoid swimming alone in twilight or after dark. Swimming in groups is generally a good idea, whenever you're in the water.
- If you see a shark and can't get out of the water fast enough, try to back up against a rock or reef so that you can see it coming from all angles.
- When all else fails, punch it in the eyes, gills or nose - in that order.
- Keep on fighting the good fight, and perhaps the darn thing will move on to someone who's a little less persistent.
