Why Real Sharks Aren't Pets

Cuddly shark plush for kids and adults.

Still can’t shake the idea of having a real shark as a pet? Listen, we get it! But in the expansive realm of exotic animal regulations, real sharks as pets are as impractical as trying to teach a fish to fetch. Legal restrictions and permits for exotic pets quickly turn a backyard aquarium dream into a bureaucratic nightmare. Safety concerns, not just for humans but also for our toothy friends, make having a real shark as a pet more challenging than keeping up with a school of fish. While it might sound great to have a shark companion, the risk and gill-t of having a shark as a pet outweigh the underwater allure.

Real sharks belong in their natural habitat, where they play a vital role in maintaining the balance of marine ecosystems. There are shark protection organizations you can get involved with such as the NOAA and Pew’s Global Shark Conservation, which let you join the fight in keeping these fast fishes swimming free. So instead of risking a misadventure at home, opt for a safer yet delightful alternative. Jump into the world of shark plushies! These cuddle plushies offer all the joy without the bite, making them the perfect pets for anyone looking to keep humans and sharks safe and sound.
