Submission + - AC/DC music attracts great white sharks ( 1

bazzalunatic writes: That's right, great white sharks can be lured underwater to cages by playing hits from AC/DC — specifically "Shook me all night long".

Some shark diving tour operators in Australia have found this curious fact. But it's not just music, as the sharks weren't attracted by other tunes.

One wonders if they'll be turned off by Celine Dion music — a new type of shark repellent perhaps?

AC/DC music attracts great white sharks

  • I find it humorous that the sharks like "You Shook Me"; I picture a shark with prey in its mouth shaking it to the tune. TFA mentioned that Zeppelin's the next band they're trying, I wonder if the sharks would like Zeppelin's "You Shook Me"?

    Did they test "Highway to Hell", I wonder?
