Friday Favorite: (Great White) SHARKS!

I'm a huge huge fan of sharks, as most of you all know by now. I'm not sure exactly where my fascination stemmed from, but I'm glad I have it. Luckily, my BFF/Roommate Bryan also loves sharks... He let me borrow this awesome Sharks & Rays book he just got from Borders. So excited! I've got Shark Week on DVD, and when that time of year rolls around, I venture to my parents' house (they have cable; i don't ha!) and I stay glued to the tv for an entire week.

I live and breathe sharks.

and unfortunately, over 100 of the 370+ species of shark will be extinct by the year 2017. That's only 7 years away! They're being pulled up from the ocean, having their fins sawed off, and then they're thrown back overboard to let sink in the depths like a torpedo. All for Shark Fin Soup. If we eliminate the need/desire for Shark Fin Soup, we can continue to live with these glorious creatures, study them, and figure out exactly what makes the tick. It's times like this I wish I had gone to school for Marine Biology.

But everyone can help. CLICK HERE to visit SharkTrust and adopt a shark! You can choose Cut-Tail, the Great White, or you can choose a Basking Shark. Every little bit helps!

Now, here's a bunch of photos!

  1. Those are some great photos! I especially like the one with the birds flying overhead of the one coming out of the water. (The cupcakes look mighty tasty,too!) :) Have a great weekend!

  6. Nice picture! I love those cupcakes, especially the shark fin ones, they're super simple but so neat!
    Also, the circus post on my blog was totally an April fools joke! I had fun with it! I was in a April fools mood yesterday; I pulled a few pranks on the ol' BF and he never saw them coming, haha
