Shark Week is an annual event and occurs during a one-week span of non-stop shark-filled action. Viewers can tune in to this weekly event to get a better understanding about how sharks tick. Many Discovery channel veterans such Jamie Hyman, Craig Ferguson, Andy Samberg, Philip Defranco, Adam Savage, Mike Rowe and many more are asked to host Shark Week each year and many shark specialists are invited to inform the viewers about these magnificent creatures. The experts usually set up certain research studies to carefully monitor the behavioral and migratory patterns of the Sharks. During Shark Week, viewers are able to take a close up look at the lives of these great animals. Many species of sharks are shown during Shark Week including: the great white, tiger sharks, lemons sharks, carpet sharks, blue sharks, reef sharks, whale sharks, nurse sharks, and many more species of sharks. In addition, the marine biologists and divers usually get very close to these animals and people can see how they feed and how they react to human and settle any misconception about these animals. Many people believe that sharks are horrid creatures, that are why Shark Week is dedicated in giving people the right information and teaching them to respect, not fear them. In addition, Shark Week takes viewers into the lives of the people who were attacked by these animals so that people can learn to embrace and respect sharks. These stories depict the scary, nail-biting moments when they were brutally attacked by scary sharks. The dramatizations of these attacks are vivid and enticing, that's why Shark Week is the longest television special in TV history. Shark Week is the perfect television event for people who are looking for more information on these animals.
