In the spirit of ‘Shark Week’ Facts about Sharks in Israel

1. In Israel, the only place you’re likely to see a shark is at the marine park in Eilat
2. Last confirmed shark attack was way back in 1974, and it only chose to try and attack a human because a problem with its spine meant it had trouble with its normal, speedy prey.
