Jaws Love Jazz.

Sharks are fans of jazz and swing music, it has been discovered, say scientists. They found Port Jackson sharks would swim towards spots where they played jazz more than any other genre of music. Port Jackson is in Sydney, Australia. It is the location of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Scientists have found that sharks are not merciless killing machines but sensitive souls with a passion for jazz. A study that trained sharks to associate music with food rewards learned they were not the aggressive flesh-crunching monsters of the Jaws films. Scientists from Sydney's Macquarie University found the Port Jackson sharks in their study swam to a feeding station whenever they were played jazz. They were less likely to respond to other types of music.
