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:

You will have competition.
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.
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
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!

Since I felt limited in my expression, I asked HUBPAGES to create a new category: "NOT TO ANY RELIGION BOUND RELIGIOUS PERSONS". THIS IS A POSITIVE INITIATIVE; IT IS NOT "AGAINST" ANYTHING!I JUST DONT WANT MY HUBS AND COMMENTS TO BE CATEGORIZED IN A PLACE WHERE THEY DONT...

While there are lots of fabulous categories under "Pets and Animals", it seems to me that at least one, "Wild Animals", is sorely missing. From the current hub categories, one would think all animals are either captive, endangered, or imaginary. Fortunately that's not the case,...

We have Hubnuggets for those who recently join Hubpages. How about something for those who are not new? There are so many Hubbers that it is almost impossible to know everyone and find great writers and Hubs.Through a Featured Writer by Category (main category) maybe more Hubbers would be exposed...
