Sharks

Imagine you're swimming in front of a hungry tiger shark that will eat anything it can sink it’s teeth into, what's your plan? Sharks come in many different shapes and sizes and eat many different things. Sharks have many different facts and are classified in many different ways. Sharks are very interesting fish.

Sharks are classified in many weird and strange ways. There are eight different groups that sharks are classified into: Hexanchiformes, Squaliformes, Pristiophoriformes, Squatiniformes, Heterodontiformes, Orectolobiformes, Charchinoformes, and Lamniformes. Each group has different sharks classified in it. An example is that the Lamniformes group includes sharks such as: The great white, longfin and shortfin makos, the thresher and a few more. Sharks are classified in many different ways.

Some sharks will eat anything that comes it’s way, including humans! Depending on the species, sharks will eat squid, small and big fish, seals, dolphins and even sometimes they hunt in groups and take down whales!Tiger sharks will eat ANYTHING, including a pair of bongos, a torpedo, the back end of a horse, some car tires and a human leg! Sharks’ diet’s depend on what's available, so when food is scarce they are more likely to attack a human. Sharks eat many different things.

Sharks have many different facts about them that will leave you amazed. Sink your teeth into this the great white’s teeth from it’s upper jaw can be 2 inches long! Or did you know you’re more likely to get struck by lightning than get attacked by a shark!1 Shark’s bone are made out of cartilage, that’s the same material your earlobes and nose are made out of!Shark sizes vary from the whale shark at max 50 ft. long, to the spined pygmy shark who’s just 7 inches long! Cool huh?

Sharks really are truly amazing animals. They have interesting facts about them and are classified in many different ways. They come in all shapes and sizes and they eat lots of different things. Species of sharks are becoming endangered because of hunting, so tell me, what are you going to help these amazing animals survive?
