Fact About Sharks

The Swell Shark, found in New Zealand, barks like a dog.

Sharks cannot eat Puffer Fish, because the Puffer Fish inflates like a balloon and pokes the shark’s mouth with its sharp needles.

A Whale Shark weighs about 90,000 pounds. The second largest shark is the Basking Shark. It can be as much as 40 feet long.

Most species of sharks can swim up to 20-40 miles per hour. A Mako Shark has been recorded at more than 60 miles per hour.

Sharks do not sleep the same way as humans do. They might seem as if they are sleeping but they are really just resting!

The bull shark is the only shark that can live in both fresh and salt water. A bull shark may have been responsible for a shark attack that happened in a creek in New Jersey back in 1916.

Sharks have been around for more than 300 million years! They were around before dinosaurs!
