3 people have been bitten by sharks in Florida over 3 days. Experts share tips for minimizing your risk of a shark attack.

On July 27, a shark pushed surfer Frank O’Rourke off his board near Jacksonville Beach Pier and bit his arm. O’Rourke was able to catch a wave back to shore, where he was treated for injuries, CNN reported. That same day, a 49-year-old man survived a shark bite on the leg while boogie boarding at New Smyrna Beach. And two days later, 18-year-old surfer Reed Zipperer was bitten at New Smyrna Beach, too; Zipperer’s left hand needed 19 stitches, CBS News reported.

According to Erich Ritter, a scientist from the Shark Research Institute at Princeton University, incidents like these that involve single, superficial wounds suggest “exploratory bites.” Such hit-and-run attacks account for about 80% to 90% of shark bites, Ritter told Business Insider.

“The shark is trying to figure out what we could be,” he said. “The animal’s not clamping down because we’re an unknown and could be dangerous.”
