What Happens If You Fall Into a Pool Full of Sharks?


Sharks are the oceans’ primary predators. Eating every fish in their path. But what if you ended up in a pool full of them, and you were the prey? If by some stroke of bad luck, you happen to end up in a massive pool filled with a bunch of sharks, here’s what you should do. If you fall into the pool during broad daylight, you might be in luck. Generally speaking, sharks feed at dusk or during the night. So they’ll be less likely to want to munch on you during the day. Once you’re in the water, the first thing you’ll need to do is remain calm and not make any sudden movements. Not easy, I know, but you’re not going to outswim a shark. So what do you do if one comes right for you? First, let’s put shark attacks into perspective. They’re incredibly rare, and you’re more likely to get struck by lightning than get eaten by a shark. Believe it or not, the fact that you’re a human is incredibly helpful. You might think it would be easier if you were a fish so you’d be able to blend in, but that’s not the case. You see, despite what movies might tell you, sharks don’t want to eat you! Sharks are wired to eat other fish and not other animals they don’t know about. And if you’re an average-sized human, you’re a lot bigger than most sharks. To a lot of them, you might look like something that could hurt them. The only real exception
could be a great white shark. They’re bigger than humans, and not as likely to be afraid of us. But just like other sharks, they’re generally only interested in eating other fish. Marine biologists believe most shark attacks are from humans appearing as fish in the water. A surfer’s leg dangling off their surfboard might look like a seal to some sharks, especially in rapid waters. So as long as you look like a human, you should be okay. But what if they smell your blood? Even if they do, they may still not eat you. It would be a scent they’re not used to, and the sharks might not be interested in you. You’re more likely to be eaten if the sharks hear that you’re in pain. In addition to having an amazing sense of smell, sharks can also hear incredibly well. That’s how they catch a lot of their prey. So if a shark hears you in pain, they might quickly come towards you. But that’s no guarantee that
the shark is going to eat you. Sharks aren’t vicious by nature, but they are very curious. If they notice you, they might want to see you up close. If this happens don’t be afraid, they probably just want to see who’s in their home. If they do bite you, they might not even know that they’re hurting you. Sharks’ teeth are like our hands, they’re what they use to investigate the world. So you may get bitten, not because the shark wants to hurt you, but by accident. A way you might get eaten is if these sharks in the
pool aren’t being fed at all. Then you’ll be trapped with some ravenous sharks desperate for food. If you somehow manage to avoid
being eaten by starving sharks, you’ll quickly realize how beautiful swimming with sharks can be. Now, what if sharks weren’t even
something you had to worry about, because they all went extinct? Well, that sounds like a story for another WHAT IF.

  1. This is actually ALL false. There has been multiple test ran, between cow blood, fish oil (something that sharks LOVE) , pee and human blood and sharks ALWAYS go for human blood. A shark is a curious animal, most sharks attacks happen when there’s disturbance in the surface for example (surfers) they’re paddling and kicking so sharks are ATTRACTED TO NOISE. If you are in a pool of sharks, no making any sudden moves and not bleeding then you are OKAY. The whole thing about them only eating at dusk is also false. They are predators, they eat when they are hungry. This video is false.. I love what if, but this video as a Marine Biologist, makes me hate the conceptions there are about sharks. They are animals, no matter the shark, they are PREDATORS.

  2. I have always had a fear that every pool has a shark in it so I stay in shallow water by the stairs to stay safe… Kinda sad

  3. Shark start eating my hand
    Person: OMG don't worry i will help you/ i will call 911! / somebody help her!!!
    Me: no, its okay! The shark is Investigating me! they want to be my friend thats why they want to get to know me better and closer 👌

  4. The only humans Sharks eat ; are Australians !

  6. “The sharks just might not be into you” wow even sharks aren’t into me, story of my life, no one wants me 🙃

  7. U r more likely to be killed by lightning then by a shark.. And that's a fact.. Sharks never attacks human as they didn't consider us for food.. But crocs.. Omg crocs r the real monsters

  8. "You probably think you're more lucky if you are a fish"
    Nah, no one ever thinks it's a good idea to fall into a pool of sharks being a smaller fish

  9. Well, to be speak candidly I'm not aquaman, that I would jump in pool and command these sharks, it would be madness to jump alone, these sharks eat without fry me, so it would be best idea to keep away from that hellish pool, being killed by these sharks

  10. "Sharks only want to eat other fish. Most shark attacks happen because the shark may think your a seal"
    So seals are fish? Got it.

  11. Wow I use to think sharks will eat you right away but when I watch this video it’s showed me how sharks are beautiful creatures and not there to eat you 😁

  12. First wonder first what they bite then panic u know pretty blue water about to turn bloody red if u have not gotten bitten u wondering if going make it a live. You panic again majorly cuz the thought just came in your mind about the movie JAWS the beat of heart gets your blood rushing and pass out waiting for the devil say April fools 🤨🙏😣😤😭😭 then piss and shit all over u once u get out. Damn! That's a lot think about. IF U MAKE IT OUT!!!

  13. FRESHWATER BULL SHARKS HAVE THE MOST ATTACKS ON HUMANS AND YES THEY DO FEED ON HUMANS AS THEY CAN!!! THEY ARE THE MOST AGGRESSIVE!!!! DO RESEARCH ON THINGS BEFORE YOU TELL PEOPLE FALSE INFO IDIOTS!
