If you have an ocean lover, you may also have a shark lover among you. They are the most ferocious animals in the sea and you can’t talk about the ocean without mention the giant carnivores the inhabit the waters and inspire fear. They can smell a drop of blog half a mile away.
They have sharp teeth and they are huge predators that roam the oceans looking for prey. They can mistake surfers who are sitting on their paddleboards as seals. They position themselves underneath the prey, then propel themselves towards the prey and launches out of the water with the prey in their mouths.
The prey doesn’t see it coming. They get ambushed and become a meal. But there are also smaller sharks like leopard shark that weights up to 40 lbs. The nurse shark is a bottom feeder that likes to eat crustaceans that are found on the ocean floor.
There are a ton of different sharks, who knew?
