About This Quiz

As the theme song from "Jaws" plays in the background, we throw our line out into the water, hoping to catch the right shark for your tastes. It's a dangerous game, but we think we have just the right bait to bring in the alpha predators of the ocean.

While this type of aquatic creature may have some shared characteristics across the species, we think that the differences in them will correlate very closely to the differences in those of you who suit up for this quiz. For example, if you are drawn to the spotlight, and you tend to become aggressive when you see something you want, we have a very famous type of shark in mind for you. Let's just say that it has become quite a Hollywood celebrity over the years.

On the other hand, maybe you are someone who prefers the oddities who spend their time in the shadows. Perhaps you have a soft spot in your heart for those creatures who find a way to make a living in difficult circumstances. In that case, it seems likely that you'll find their bizarre features to be both amazing and beautiful to behold.

We're pulling away from shore and heading out to sea. Join us on this voyage of discovery.
