THE SPECIFICS ABOUT SHARKS, TERRORS OF THE OCEAN
Added on: 6th Nov 2016
BABY SHARKS EAT THEIR SIBLINGS
Baby sharks often eat their brothers and sisters in the
womb, but do you know why? Since a female shark can
be impregnated by multiple male sharks, the little sharks
eat each other so their father’s baby (called a pup) is born
GREAT WHITES DON'T LIKE HOW WE TASTE
Ask any person which shark they are most scared of and
likely they’ll say a great white shark. Thankfully, we don’t

like the taste of humans, most often biting and releasing
SELF-HEATING SHARK EYES
Cold water sharks can activate an organ next to their eye
sockets which heats up their eyes, helping them hunt
better in freezing waters.
THE SHARK WHICH SWIMS AS IT SLEEPS
The dogfish shark is especially known among the shark world
for a strange trait it possesses: sleep swimming. Akin to

BLUE SHARKS' STRANGE ROMANCE
Many shark species have unusual courting techniques.
To show interest, a male blue shark will bite a female, hard.
Female blue sharks naturally have skin three times as

Besides their commonly-known greyish appearance, some
sharks are even found in pink or yellow
THE BARKING SHARK
The swell shark can double its body size to keep
predators from pulling it out of its daytime sleeping
spots of reefs and crevices. The release of air sounds

sometimes grabs its own tail in its mouth.)
THE TINIEST SHARK
The remarkably small dwarf lantern shark is only 8 inches
(20cm) long and emits its own light from various luminous spots.
