  • The largest whale shark ever measured came in at 40 feet long, making it the largest living fish in the world.
  • The basking shark can suck in as many as 2,000 tons of seawater per hour.
  • The megamouth shark has a silvery mouth that helps it attract prey right into its mouth.
  • The great white's sense of smell is so well honed that it can sense a drop of blood in 100 liters of water.
  • The bigeye thresher has a tail nearly as long as the rest of its body, which it uses as a weapon to stun or kill prey.
  • The zebra horn shark rests facing the current and pumps water over its gills so it can breathe while staying still.
  • The Halmahera shark is a species of walking shark-- it has leg-like pelvic and pectoral fins that help it move along the bottom of the ocean, which makes it look like it's walking!
  • When it's in danger, the sarawak pygmy swellshark gulps in seawater to inflate its stomach and make itself look bigger to scare off predators.
  • Female lemon sharks have a special homing sense that allows them to return to the same nursery area every time they give birth.
  • Shortfin mako sharks can travel up to 36 miles a day, and keep that pace for more than a month--that's about the same distance as 41 marathons in a month!
  • Only four taillight shark specimens have ever been studied.
