If we are talking about an actual fight between the two, I go with shark.
fast, agile, lots of teeth, no bones to break!

elephants are lugs and would be eaten apart

I guess it depends on whether they fight each other on land or in the water.

If you're asking who I'd rather be attacked by I guess I would rather fight with a single shark. A couple good jabs to the nose and they'll back off.

I am pretty sure it was supposed to be about sharks VS elephants....otherwise it'd be something like shark OR elephant.

and I suppose to make it fair, they'd have to develope some kind of compromise between land and water battle.
maybe this shark could stand on its fin? maybe a hovering ability? give the elephant an underwater breathing apparatus?
I mean the only way an elephant would lose on land is if it put the shark in its mouth and choked and died; but the shark would ultimately lose as well. Meanwhile, the elephant would stand little chance in the water.

I think the Elephant has the edge if it was turn based "fisticuffs" but I think, speed and agility wins most of the time over brute force. Just look at many battles that have been fought in the past.

most victims of shark attacks go into almost instant shock and feel little to no pain.

where as with elephants they tend to kick you around and beat on you for more then a few seconds. have you ever seen the video of that trainer that got attacked? the elephant kicked him around the block, literally. being attacked by an elephant is more like being bucked of a bull in a rodeo, they just keep coming at you.

sharks usually bite then release. if its bad enough to kill you, you die, if not, you go into shock and wake up in the hospital.

Well, if we're talking about a fight between a shark and an elephant than the fight would have to happen in the water. A shark cannot survive out of water so no fight there. An elephant can swim though so a fight in the water is definitely possible. The shark would win in a fight in the water because the shark is a marine species that is adapted to living in the water. An elephant cannot breat beneath the water so it would be at a huge disadvantage. Also, a shark has wickedly sharp teeth. An elephant doesn't. An elephants main defense on land...it's huge feet and and trunk would be practically useless in the water. The elephant wouldn't stand a chance. That said...the shark probably wouldn't attack an elephant anyway. They tend to avoid strage creatures...and an elephant in the middle of the ocean is definitely strange.

Um, NO. They don't. They have cartilage.

Anyway, about 77% of the Earth's surface is ocean, so the shark has over a 3/4 chance of winning.

If you could somehow get over the terrain problem, the shark could just outfight the slow behemoth.

Think about being close enough to either one and having them attack. At least with an elephant it would be almost instant death whereas with a shark you are bleeding through your wounds in salt water...

An elephant remembers enough to know the weaknesses of the Shark....

Elephant wins.

Not all sharks will back off with a couple punches or kicks to the nose... Some are very tenacious (ie: tiger shark) and will attack until they're satisfied.

In water, shark wins.
In land, elephant wins.

Period.

Elephants can swim, sharks can't walk.
