Did you know ...

Of all Aquaman’s friends in the ocean, none are as cool as sharks.  In fact, there are some pretty neat  things most people don’t know:

  •  Sharks do not have a single bone in their bodies. Instead they have a skeleton made up of cartilage; the same type of tough, flexible tissue that makes up human ears and noses.
  • Unlike other species of shark, the great white is warm-blooded. Although the great white does not keep a constant body temperature, it needs to eat a lot of meat in order to be able to regulate its temperature. 
  •  Sharks were around way before dinosaurs, around 400 million years ago. (The dinosaurs appeared in the Triassic, 245 million years ago).
  • Sharks never run out of teeth.. they lose one another spins forward from rows and rows of backup teeth – A shark may grow and lose 20, 000 teeth in its lifetime!
