5 Crazy Shark Facts

Ciao lovelies! Today, let's learn 5 Crazy Shark Facts, to celebrate the end of Shark Week!


Let's learn about sharks!

#1- If a Shark stops moving- it can die! 
Yes it's true- sharks breathe because of water moving over their gills, so if they stop moving, they could die!

#2- Sharks never really "sleep."
Some species can swim on a "natural auto pilot" to rest, but since they must keep moving, they never enter true sleep.

#3- Sharks can detect electricity!
Using these little fibers in the nose, called ampullae of Lorenzini, sharks can detect the electrical currents in the water!

#4- Sharks jaws are not attached to their skull!
This allows them to thrust out their lower jaw to capture prey!

#5- Sharks have been around for 400 million years!
That's longer than the dinosaurs!

Did you enjoy learning these shark facts? Happy end of Shark Week!
