Shark

In many countries sailors believed that sharks could sense if a death had occurred or if it was imminent believing the animal could smell it. The sight of a number of sharks following a ship was considered a definite omen of death occurring to someone on board the vessel. It has been alleged that Christopher Columbus, the navigator once believed to have discovered America, believed in the power of sharks to sense such dangers.
