Crocs die to an easy QTE and sharks are pretty easy to get away from. Honestly all of the animals in this game are pretty weak compared to something like the cougars from Red Dead Redemption.

Because I have a legitimate fear of sharks and crocs/alligators.

Sharks are the reason why I refuse to step foot in the ocean, and both are a partial reason why I will never go to Australia.

Well yeah it makes sense to be afraid of a real croc, I live in Florida and I've seen a croc put a dent in a car with it's tail. Sharks really are an irrational fear though. They almost never attack humans. However, in game they are pushovers and can't really do a hell of a lot.

Because they're just sneaky and spooky... The damage they do in game is irrelevant

Look at that ****ing thing, it's irrational to even want to be near one.

I'd rather go one-on-one against Cthulu with a foam pool noodle as my weapon than treed water 300 yards away from a shark.

Meh, I guess jump scares just are not as effective on me as they are on some people. Still, it seems like people are making a really big deal out of them.

They have the potential to do a great deal of harm, but not the motivation. If you are going to be afraid of everything that can possibly hurt you then enjoy not going outside. It just boggles my mind that people can get in cars every day without a second though, but then crap their pants at the sight of a shark.

it's the shock value for me. I've actually died to more than a few crocs for just dropping my controller or something because I had the crap scared out of me

Last time I checked, cars aren't giant fish with razor sharp teeth.

It's irrational of you to criticize people's fears and assume they're terrified of anything that can hurt them. Fear of sharks is incredibly common, I don't fear them myself but if they suddenly went extinct (and don't give any stupid hippie garbage about the ecosystem) I would not bat an eye.

Sharks can have plenty of motivation to attack people.

Lord help you when you learn some sharks can survive in fresh water.
