Sharks

A mysterious creature we still don’t fully understand, sharks are cold blooded vertebrates, have fins, and breathe with gills. Though they are fish there are many defining characteristics that separate them from the others. Their aerodynamic body shape helps them glide through the water like a torpedo. Rigid fins provide stability, keeping them from rolling over in the water. Sharks have exposed gills through which water passes, allowing them to breathe. Most sharks either swim or rest in a current in order for the water to pass through their gills. Nurse sharks, however, can pump water through their gills, allowing them to lay motionless on the ocean floor.

Creatures of the Deep

Discover what lies far below, and how they have adapted to hunt their prey. The Gigantura is part of a species called a Telescopefish that go through dramatic changes in their lives as they grow through stages to become an adult. The change is likened to a tadpole becoming a frog. Fully grown they are about a foot long and use their big eyes that look like binoculars to search for its bioluminescent prey.
