The People and Animals With the Best Shark Costumes for Shark Week

The outfits are so cute, we can only hope they live EVERY week like it's Shark Week

In case you were unaware, it’s officially Shark Week, Discovery Channel’s annual deluge of shark-related programming. Some people — like, for example, scientists who actually know things about sharks — are not super into this annual sharkstravaganza, claiming that it peddles fiction disguised as fact. But others — you know, the rest of us plebs who just thinks sharks are super awesome — are still pretty into the whole thing.

And so, we’d like to take a moment to pay tribute to the especially die-hard Shark Week fans: the people (and animals) who’ve dressed up like sharks to mark the occasion. We can only hope that these folks are truly taking to heart that age-old advice to “live every week like it’s Shark Week.” We have a feeling they are.

Who else is a big fan of @discoverychannel's @sharkweek? ✋ #sharkweek #sharkweekfanboy #extrasharky #extrasmiley
