Do sharks always attack?
Sharks sometimes attack, but not every time they see someone swimming in the water! They attack sometimes, but not often, and it's RARELY fatal. Technologically , some sharks do not bite . Some sharks like tiger sharks attack humans and aquatic animals . White sharks attack only the small fishes in the water . Thank you!

What sharks attack people?
great whites any shark will attack a person of it smells blood so if your at the beach don't get in the water if you have a little cut that is blooding sharks can smell blood 100 miles away It depends on things you are doing, say you are surfing sharks think that the surf board is a seal so they attack it (that is manly great whites though tiger sharks do too). Getting attacked by a shark and getting killed by a shark are both very unlikely. Say you get attacked by a great white they do not like the taste of human meat so after they take some part of you they are likely to leave you alone, if you get attacked by a tiger shark you are likely to be killed, but the chances of getting killed by a shark is 1 in 123,223 and the chances of getting killed by a dog is 1 in 1,023. the three main types of sharks to attack humans are the Great white tiger shark bull shark but some smaller sharks like grey reef sharks and copper sharks may attack humans.

Asked in Dolphins and Porpoises
Why do sharks eat humans and dolphins don't?
Humans are not typical prey for sharks, and rarely have the eaten anyone. They do, rarely, attack and even kill swimmers, but it is believed that they may be mistaking humans for seals or sea lions, their typical prey. Usually, even when sharks attack humans (except in frenzy situations), they bite and release. Dolphins have also been known to attack humans, although a bit more rare than sharks. As mentioned regarding sharks, dolphins do not eat humans.
