Testing if Sharks Can Smell a Drop of Blood

Scientific proof Pixar sits on a throne of lies. Thanks to Bose for their support and for the dopest headphones I've ever worn:
Also, thanks to Discovery for putting my life in danger.

More info that was promised-
What is likely happening is that the sharks can smell the blood but it's just not in a quantity that is interesting to them especially since they don't love human blood that much (btw, I spoke with a marine biologist and mammal blood is all the same from a chemical marker stand point so cow blood is a suitable substitute for human blood). If I did the experiment again, I would want to test human blood vs. fish blood.
This is the most definitive study done to date in a control lab environment on what is least and most interesting to them: The Biology of Sharks and Rays Peter A. Klimley and Steven Oerding; ISBN-13: 9780226442495. Particularly pages 134-140. Figure 6.7; Table 6.2

Summary: I've always wanted to test if sharks can really smell a single drop of blood in the water from 1 mile away. So I went to the Bahamas in shark infested waters and set up an experiment to get to the bottom of things.

They are soft-

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

    Kind of bummed out he didn't then test cows blood vs a marine animals blood, or even shark blood to see if would attract or disperse them.

    There was a TV show a while back where there were 2 baby sharks in a small tank, about the size of a small swimming pool. He dropped in a few drops of fresh human blood, no reaction. He then dropped a few drops of pigs blood and the two sharks came right over. I was amazed. I think this is the same guy who sat in a jacuzzi with a bunch of pirannah, no reaction.

    This experiment is not reliable only because the sharks could have learned that the blood led to nothing there for was no reason for them to investigate it

    You should try to do this same exact experiment in the middle of the ocean (not the Bahamas ) bc we can see if great whites actually go after the smell of human blood

    Nice video. I am a bit troubled by the fact that 1) the boards where close to a boat which the sharks where obviously interested, 2) you depunked something that was keeping people from peeing in the sea and 3) you might have dropped blood next to the boat when putting cow blood to the bag.
