SUGGESTION: Category for shark related articles

    I've just changed all my hubs over to the 'Pets and Animals' section, after realising that the majority of hubs on sharks go there.

    http://hubpages.com/topics/pets-and-ani … ks/sharks/

    The most written-about shark is definitely not an aquarium animal, and neither would sharks be considered to be 'pets' as suggested on the feed.

    I would recommend a new category, under Dangerous Marine creatures. Can't remember where that is, but saw it somewhere.

    I really think sharks should be classed under Education and Science ~> Geography, Nature and Weather ~> Oceans and Seas ~> Marine creatures -~> sharks

    It sticks in my throat to see shark or shark attack articles listed under "Pets".

    Your link doesn't work.

    I think I found what you were referring to:

      Sorry,I meant this - http://hubpages.com/topics/pets-and-ani … harks/4620

      I just moved all my hubs over to there yesterday, and while they don't appear to be showing up on the feed, they have all seen a substantial rise in traffic.

      It still seems to be the wrong category. Tropical and aquarium fish? Come on! The great white is neither.

    Hi there,

    We agree with you. Sharks is now in the following taxonomy:

    Pets and Animals → Marine Life → Sharks

    "Pets and animals" is a very illogical category. Given that all pets are animals (with the exception of pet rocks, I guess!), but not all animals are pets, surely the main category should simply be "Animals", with pets as a sub-category.

    Did Hubpages go offline for a while there? I tried to reply to this and got a Google Chrome could not connect to Hubpages message, yet I could still see other sites.

    Oh well, what I tried to say was thanks very much for this welcome change smile

    And also, writeangled, don't forget the Americans sometimes have pets that are not animals. Pet rocks, anyone? lol

    Edit: must need my eyes tested - you mentioned the pet rocks already!
