​No denizen of the animal kingdom—from the tiniest puffer fish to the King of the Jungle—is comfortable when a shark is around, even if that King is located nowhere near an ocean.

Discovery, with help from AV Squad, makes great use of its incredible nature photography in this actually shark-free spot for Shark Week, which started Sunday, July 28.
