The “re-defining” of the animal kingdom has become a widespread trend among artists these days. And sharks are no different.

This is what happens when Shark Week and a Harry Potter marathon clash during an all night bender. The most terrifying Dark Wizard of the high seas. Majestic, misunderstood, deadly.
Even if most of these guys are pretty tame, I still wouldn't want to mess with any of 'em. Not only are these sharks bigger than you, but they have some of the most intimidating names around.
