A group of researchers from Flinders University, in Australia, is developing a wetsuit that may save the lives of surfers, divers, and swimmers in case of a shark attack.

The material used in the creation of a suit of armor is similar to Kevlar and is designed to prevent the wounds that cause blood loss.

A great white shark has approximately 50 razor-sharp teeth which can easily break bones, but the new suit hopes to prevent tear lacerations.

Even though the chances of being attacked by a shark are infinitesimally small, surfers, divers, and swimmers will always be more exposed to the predator’s assault.
