Tara Reid
didn't want to sound "stupid" on "Shark After Dark" ... but she failed, miserably.

The "Sharknado" star appeared on Discovery's "Shark After Dark" with costar Ian Ziering where she showed off her shark knowledge ... or should we say, lack-thereof.

"So I look up sharks on the internet and I see whale sharks so I’m like that must mean that a whale and a shark have sex and then it made me think how do a whale and a shark have sex?," she asked.

We understand reading can be confusing, for some people -- but at least she finally came to some logical conclusion by the end of her crazy explanation. 

Check out the clip above to see Tara try to explain what a whale shark is!
