this morning on in depth, today's shark week. it's finallyhere. >> of course, most of us would never, ever, ever dream of swimming with sharks, but then again -- >> could have a nightmare about that. >> kerry sanders is not like a lot of people. he's at the oklahoma where this guy is about to get up close and personal with some bull. shar kerry, good morning. >> well, good morning. i'm at the entrance here in the tank into the tank with those bull sharks. ten of them. a re doing this to dispel myth. bulls are among the most aggressive sharks in the world'b oceans the myth is they're out there searching for humans, to attack but you'll see as i go in there, if everything works as we expect, that everything is going to be fine. the sharks may be interested in me, but nothing more than that. i'll explain in a moment this really strange suit i'mwearing, but first, let's look at the
7:44 am
amazin for decades, sharks have both intrigued and terrified us. even if stati mically we'reore likely to f diem a coconut falling on our head. the blockbuster movie "jaws" gave the shark a b rap. "jaws" was pretty hard on sharks in general. i think it kind of painted a th monster. >> marine biologist john money is the deputy director at oklahoma aquariums he say in reality, sharks are not looking to attack us. >> it's not an attack. usually the bite is exploratory. they're looking for food. they're hunting fish. >> those accidental attacks are more rare than you would think. they happened on average 80 times a year worldwide. more than half of them in thees united stat and most of those in florida, although last week, weaw two kids bitten off the coast of new york's fire island.
7:45 am
the attacks within an hour of each other. >> i could have lost a leg, but i didn't. >> of the rk465 known s species living in our oceans today, the bull shark is one of the biggest and boldest. it's considered the third most dangerous after the tiger s grk anat white. it can grow as large as eight feet long and weigh up to 500 pounds, and its teeth are like razors. the strength of a bite could break bones. but as long as we leave them alone, experts believe they are not interested in eating us. >> we're not on the menu.'r the really not a threat to us. >> or so i hope, since i'm now down here with bul sharks. well,ys i'm now down here, and you can probably hear me breathing a little heavy because this is -- this should not be scary, but it is in my mind, nonetheless. it's not sething tha you are
7:46 am
used to. and these guys, again, the thi most aggressive. interestingly, i am the first person that they have allowed to come in here that doesn't wor here. so it's a bit of a challenge. as i noted, was goio tell you what i'm wearing. this is chain mail. this is sort of like the knights of the roundtable from king arthur. told that if a shark decides to come bite me, it won't be able to penetra the suit, but in all likelihood, it may break a bone. and if you want to know why i'm a little unsettled, there's p a paramedics on the top just in case. guys. >> kerry, can you see any of the sharks from where you are right now? >> i can. there's a couple behind me. and the sharks -- let's maybe they're afraid of me.
7:47 am
look like they have all gone to the back end of the tank right now. one thing i was told by those who come into the tank on a regur basis is that the ubbles actually scare away the sharks. so what i'll do, here comes one right there, just turned. let me hold my breath for a 's moment and l see if a shark comes by. >> good idea. >> well -- >>on't hold it too long. >> well, there'sen bull sharks in here, and i see two or three right over here. and let's see if they're about- to they're turning back. so i can see the sharks around me. you don't see them right now. >> we doee them, kerry. you are -- we should point out to everybody, you are, again, a certified scuba diver. you know what you're doing down there. tell us what feeding time is
7:48 am
like for those sharks. >> well, feeding time actually happens on the surface here at the tank. and what they do is they drop the food in just a couple times during the week, and there's a lot of precautions that take place. just to give you an idea, allowing me into thistank, they only get in this tank themselves about once a month. and that's just to clean the windows in the tank. so i is not common for people to get into this tank andor sharks to come by this close. but i'm feeling -- i'm in my mind that i should be more -- i guess i feel like att this point t the sharks are not going to bother me. but it's still in the back of my mind, this concern that they may decide to get curious. >> wow.
7:49 am
kerrou're giving me some anxiety with that heavy breathing. thank you souch for showings that. >> we appreciate that, kerry. wow. >> that whole segment we did. >> what about hoda saying it's feeding time. >> i didn't t seehe shark going -- >> you see a few sharks, the bull sharks were close to him that we could on screen. it looked like he wasn't turning his head tooch >> still coming up, should you trade in your smartphone for an d school flipphone. remember them? we'll tell you about the experiment that changed one woman's life. first, these messages.
