Shark Week 2021: Do Sharks Like GoPros?

Shark Week 2021 starts with a few interesting shark experiments. Do sharks actually attack people with GoPros?

This year’s Shark Week has a few interesting shark experiments with bioluminescence and GoPro cameras. Many believe a myth that sharks are attracted to and attack GoPros on selfie sticks.

The theory is that sharks are attracted by the electrical signals emitted from the cameras. Watch the video clip below to see how this experiment was done and the results. They also do a bit of ghost hunting… LOL

In this episode experiments are conducted to test shark’s eyesight (field of vision) under darker conditions.

Watch this Shark Week clip below, its entertaining and very informative.
