The Shark

The largest fish and the most feared by man.  Sharks live in every ocean.  The shark has no natural predator other than the killer whale.  The physiology of the shark is beyond any other hunter, with eight amazing sensory organs and jaws so powerful, it remains unrivaled in the animal kingdom.  The tenacity of their will to live is extremely impressive.  Gaffed, harpooned, shot, torn open, they are still able to move swiftly and rip apart their victims.  The evolution of the shark is amazing, considering they have remained unchanged for over 350 million years.
