Episode Detail: Shark Myths - MythBusters

The team aims to take a bite out of shark myths, including whether they are driven back by magnets, if dogs attract sharks and how the thrashings of an injured fish lure sharks. The team also builds a life-size robotic great white to see if a human could gouge the shark's eyes while being crushed in its jaws.
