The difference between you and Irwin is you're not actively seeking out rays to "fondle" and try to do stuff with. General rule of thumb is, if you leave it alone they will leave you alone.

The reporters were funny though! I think sharks are really cool, just yah know, in videos and pictures. I live in Michigan and we're surrounded by lakes. Most around here don't care for the ocean at all because of that. Why would you risk the dangers of the ocean when we got these big ass lakes!? Lmao.

Rays are dangerous because they blend in with the sand.

People step on them.

Right i know this, as I stated before my mom stepped on one in Mexico some years back. That doesn't make them dangerous all you do is shuffle your feed. Swimming with them more often than not isn't dangerous unless you're trying to do whatever Irwin was doing or stupid things.

All in all there are other things in the sea you do have to worry about more so than rays and sharks, jellyfish are by far worse, since most of the time they just drift into you. I'd rather be in shark infested waters than humboldt squid water, they have a tendency to drag humans down and are a lot more aggressive.

I got caught in a man-o-war swarm once while skin diving in the Bahamas. We could see the sharks swimming past, they ignored us. Man-o-war sting everything.

On a side note: I remember when the pier in West Palm Beach started restricting the size of reels and test of line fishermen were allowed to use.

It seems tourists were getting upset when people on the pier were catching hammerheads
Restricting the reels didn't make the sharks go away, but it kept the beachgoers from panicking.

Out-of-sight, out-of-mind.

The only sharks I've seen have been on tv or young dead sharks at the fish mongers which I've had deep fried in batter with a hot sauce, fried dough and salad. I've swam in the see on numerous occasion and had fun. There were fish, even crabs but that was it.

Id still go in the ocean. Sharks are said to hate the taste of humans and i wouldnt be surprised if most of the attacks are on surfers since its said that sharks will sometimes mistake the surfboards for one of its prey. Id probably be more worried about jellyfish than anything. Ive seen pictures of jellyfish stings and they dont look pleasant.

As long as I understand sharks and ways to avoid attacks during interactions, I don't mind going into the ocean, especially after watching several fishing shows about guys battling 1000+ pound sharks and considering that I'm an avid fisherman. Fear stands for "False Evidence Appears Real." Watch Sharkwater if you want to overcome your fear of sharks.

You know how on land there's a wide variety of life with herbivores and carnivores that eat them alive?
In the ocean, there's mostly carnivores.
