Sharks – Natural born hunters

November 16, 2010 at 6:22 pm | Posted in Fishes | Leave a comment

Sharks are some of the fiercest natural hunters on the planet. Period. When I say natural, it means no training involved whatsoever. Father sharks and mother sharks don’t teach baby sharks to hunt. That would be so sissy in the shark world.

Sharks are born with special cells in their brains that allow them to track down even the smallest fish hiding under sand on the ocean floor. These cells are sensitive to electrical fields in the water. When a fish swims or even breathes, the water around it generates electrical pulses that go off in every direction. A shark can pick up these signals from a mile away, and when it does, somebody ought to start swimming!
