Sharks are incredible animals they hunt and their are one of the best and I will be talking about their habitat, their diet their, appearance and how a shark protects itself
Sharks have adapted to living in a wide range of aquatic habitats at various temperatures. While some species of shark inhabit shallow coastal regions others live in deep waters on the ocean floors and in the open oceans. Some species like the Bull shark are even known to swim in fresh and brackish waters. Most sharks live in some places like coastal waters and oceans and habitats of some sort. Their habitat is varied according to their subs species
Sharks primarily feed on smaller fish than themselves. Most sharks are also known to eat humans if they are confused or curious. Some species of sharks also feast on Seals, Sea lions and other marine animals. The biggest sharks in the world like the Whale sharks and the Basking shark amazingly mostly eat plankton. One big meal can keep most sharks going for many months. A few sharks are Cannibals and scavengers
The physical structure of a shark is a key factor influencing their hunting and living habitats. A colour of a shark's body has been designed with camouflage in the mind. Most sharks average a length of about 5.8 to 7 metres long much the same as humans. One of the famous shark named the Megalodon is (which is now extinct) in now estimated to be around a whopping 15-24 metres long (50-78 ft long) and the Great white shark is now endangered. They are a very dominant species in the aquatic food chain
In some form of sharks they have been around for 400 million years and they are they are the top predators of the aquatic food chain. Even before the dinosaurs were around roaming the earth, sharks were around hunting through the oceans. They’re such good survivors that they had little need to evolve in the last 150 million years
So as you can see Sharks are amazing animals and their habitat is awesome I hope you enjoyed reading this report about sharks.
