ARTICLE TOP ADIf you’re afraid of spiders, then you have arachnophobia. If horses give you the shivers, then you have equinophobia. If you cringe at the thought of worms, then you have scoleciphobia. What about a fear of sharks? Actually, that would just make you sensible. The official classification of a fear of sharks is galeophobia from the Greek “galeos,” which roughly translated means “swimming fish machine of death.” That might be a slight embellishment. Although we might be afraid of sharks, we certainly have a fascination with the creatures. Any movie trailer that shows a fin in the water can guarantee box office gold. Over on the Discovery Channel, they’ve devoted a week to nothing but sharks for years. If you’re going anywhere near the ocean, then you’ll want to load you up on everything you need to know about sharks. Always good to go into the waters as an expert.
