Sharktoid Factoid, No. 1

Did you know that Great White Sharks have been known to jump out of the water at over 12 feet?! Since they are easily one of largest and heaviest shark species, this ability is fascinating and awesome. Researchers have observed that in an attack, they move directly vertical towards their prey on the surface at speeds near 20 miles per hour.

Hecks yes.

we have a great picture of liam holding a toy shark with his mouth wide-open. i'm trying to get it up on facebook, but it's being stupid at the moment.

anyway, we had our own little version of shark week with that one, just for you.
