Mark Rober, a Youtube celebrity, posted a special video on his channel these days to check if the myth of blood and sharks is true.
He made special droppers, mounted them on boards, and then tested in a place full of sharks if the “bait” really worked.
In addition to blood, he tested sharks with different baits: urine flowed from one bait and fish oil from the another. Initially, the test was performed with the blood of a cow, and then with the help of the recording team, a human blood test was performed.
The first test showed that sharks are most attracted to cow blood, but the test did not completely convince Mark.
When he did a similar experiment with human blood, the results surprised him. No shark has swum in the vicinity of blood, and the myth of blood and sharks remains just a… myth!
