Did you know that: Sharks never run out of teeth. If one is lost, another spins forward from the rows and rows of backup teeth. A shark may grow and use over 20,000 teeth in its lifetime!
Baby sharks are called pups and sharks can have from 1 to 100 babies at a time, depending on the type of shark.
A shark if inverted enters a natural state of paralysis. This state is called 'tonic' and the shark usually becomes dull and unresponsive for a while. Researchers use this condition for handling sharks safely. The condition is termed tonic immobility.
Until the late 16th century sharks were called Sea-dogs. The name shark first came into use around the late 1560s to refer to the large Sharks of the Carribean Sea, and later to Sharks in general. The name Shark is derived from the Mayan word for shark pronounced shock or shawk.
