I don’t know about you, but I’m enjoying the hell out of Shark Week. There’s no better way to unwind after a long day at work than watching terrifying sea creatures tear cute sea creatures to bits with their ferocious teeth, amiright?
Of course, like all good things, Shark Week is going to come to an end eventually. (I’m guessing Friday, since that’s when they say it will end.) And then what are we supposed to do?
Well, I’ll tell you what. When SW is over and we’re in need of a shark fix, we can just come right here and check out these badass shark animated GIFs. They won’t give you quite the same high that a week’s worth of primetime HD footage will, but they can tide you over.
Check them out.
Yo school of fish, that's a shark. Get out of the way.
27. Get Out the Way
For some reason, the fact that this is grainy black-and-white footage makes it even more terrifying.
Oh hey, what's that? Ah, no big deal, just a shark casually circling our boat.
25. Out for a Swim
We told you about this guy a few months back. He is the reason we will never go kayak fishing. Ever.
24. Fisherman vs. Shark
Um, hey Bob, there's like, a shark, swimming right for your head. FYI.
I'm glad sharks don't really smile. They're scary enough as it is.
22. Sharky Smile
Ditto what I just said about smiling for laughing. Nobody needs any of that.
21. Sharky Laugh
Get it? He's so despicable that the sharks are no match for him! Oh the hilarity.
(Warning: the next one is gruesome.)
20. Despicable Shark
Take that you drunk curmudgeon! You're shark food now.
On a side note, if a shark eats a drunken fisherman, does it get drunk?
I'm sorry, slapping the shark's nose is the incorrect response. We were looking for get the [email protected]#& out of there. But thanks for playing "What Would You Do If A Shark Tried to Eat Your Boat?"
18. Close Encounter
Pro Tip: if the shark has it's mouth around your camera lens, you are too close.
Now you know.
17. Little Too Close
Hey everybody, goblin sharks are messed up. Stay the hell away from these Alien-like creatures.
16. Behold the Goblin Shark
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to get attacked by a shark while scuba diving...well, here you go.
15. Shark Attack
This is how I imagine we will all get around in the future, when all the earth's polar ice has melted and everything is underwater. The shark will be the new horse...only it can eat you.
14. The Shark Rider
This GIF is just two images, and yet it's still so horrifying. Well done, Eric H. Cheng. Well done.
13. Say AHHH
If sharks are for gay rights, who am I to be against? After all, they've been around for like 400 million years, and we've only been around for a couple hundred thousand. Evolutionary speaking, they must be doing something right, you know?
12. Pride Shark
Hammer head sharks: one of nature's goofiest-looking creatures.
That's like ten too many sharks for my taste. I hope this was a robot camera or something.
10. Shark Party
Hey ma! I'm gone go down t' th' beach an' rassle me some sharks!
9. The Shark Wrangler
Much like Alec Baldwin, sharks hate paparazzi.
8. Camera Snack
Sharknado was pretty much the best idea in the history of basic cable.
Well, after Shark Week, anyway.
PS, the next GIF is pretty gory, so...
When I was a kid, my cousin wouldn't go swimming at the family lake for years after she watched Jaws for the first time. Thank God Sharknado wasn't around back then, or she would have locked herself in her bedroom and never come out.
Warning: if you haven't actually seen Sharknado, the next GIF contains a pretty rad spoiler.
6. Sharknado Shark Attack
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you kill a flying shark with a chain saw.
