A lot of fun with Shark Stories, Fossils, Diving, Shark Jaws, Antishark equipment, Posters, Scuba equipment, videos, and much more! Riccardo will answer to any kind of questions about the Shark World!

Do you know the Sharks arrive in the Earth 350 milion years ago and they are still alive with 537 living species?

Do you know dinosaurs arrive in the Earth around 243/233 milion years ago and they disappear 65 milion years ago?

Do you know Cetaceans (Whales and dolphins) arrive in the Earth 53 milion years ago and they are still alive with 89 living species?

This is the reason why everybody in the Planet LOVE and HATE sharks... something MISTERIOUS around this Cartilagineous Fish.
