Hi all,
        Remembefr that sharks need food and so are more likely where 
normal supplies of food are to be found. The more important item is that 
blood is not a unique substance that instantly spreads out in all 
directions. It goes with currents and that means less liklihood of a 
wound attracting hordes of great whites to a swimming mammoth.
