Sharks Gallery Collection

Sharks are fish but unlike bony fish, they have a cartilaginous skeleton. Their bodies are streamlined and covered by the small tooth-like, dermal denticles protecting their skin from damage and parasites. They have several sets of replaceable teeth and five to seven gill slits. Sharks range in size from the small dwarf lanternshark, a deep sea species of only 7 in (17 cm) in length, to the whale shark, the largest fish of 39 ft (12 m) which filter feeds only on plankton, squid, and small fish.
