They are all carnivores. Is it true?
The term flexitarian refers to those who adopt a diet avoiding the consumption of meat, whether fish or red meat. They eat, but try not to. This option is usually related to concerns about the environment, other animals and nature in general. Because it is a flexible diet as its name implies, it is easier to reach vegetarianism or veganism when desired.
But how does this relate to sharks?!
But in fact most sharks are smaller than humans, they are not dangerous and do not eat humans. When an incident occurs, commonly called an exploratory bite, as can be seen in this post here, rarely more than one bite happens, not devouring the human, wrongly chosen.
They can eat grass!
And now Nature magazine breaks another paradigm! A species of hammerhead shark was found that eats, in addition to its crustaceans, algae on the sandy bottom, commonly called seagrass. A greater amount of algae has already been found in the stomach of these animals than food of animal origin.
Who called it flexitarian was Nature
