Sharks have been in existence for the last 400 million years. That’s 200 million years before dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
The whale shark is the largest fish in the ocean.
There are almost 400 species of sharks that come in all shapes, sizes and even colors.
Sharks keep the ocean ecosystem in balance. If sharks disappeared, fish populations could have more disease out breaks and coral could possibly die.
All sharks have a “sixth sense” – they can sense the electric fields emitted by animals in the surrounding water.
