Watch Out... It's Shark Week

Shark Trivia

Shark Science Speed Round:

 

Here are a few shark factoids to get you warmed up for Shark Week:

  1. Are they a fish or a mammal?  Sharks are cartilaginous fish and are in the same class as rays.
  2. Where do sharks live?  Sharks are found in all five oceans in the world.  Some sharks, like the bull shark, can live in either salt or fresh water.
  3. How long ago did sharks start living?  Paleontologists believe that sharks began living on earth around 450 million years ago (based upon shark scale and teeth fossils).  In comparison, fish began living around 510 million years ago and dinosaurs around 230 million years ago.
  4. How many teeth do great white sharks have?  Great whites have about 50 teeth in their mouths, but they tend to lose teeth very easily.  Luckily they have five extra rows of teeth waiting in their mouth to replace the lost or broken ones.  Some scientists estimate that a great white may have as many as 50,000 teeth in their lifetime.
  5. Are sharks dangerous to humans?  Records show that only 4 of the 470+ species of sharks have been involved in attacks on humans.  They are the great white, oceanic white tip, tiger and bull sharks.  Attacks when they do happen tend to be a case of mistaken identity.  Nope, Mr. Shark I’m not a seal!
