It is said that sharks have existed for 450 million years, so many authors claim that they could be the oldest animal species on the planet, even older than the dinosaurs. It is a cartilaginous fish of the chondrichthyes group. Some of its species can reach up to 10 meters in length.
They are characterized by being predators, with such a powerful sense of smell that they can smell blood from several kilometers away. They also have a great ability to camouflage themselves to their victims, since their dark color on the upper half of their body makes them blend in with the surface of the sea.
In addition, they have a large mouth with several rows of sharp teeth. On the sides of their body there are noticeable gill slits, through which they breathe underwater.
There are about 375 species, the whale shark being the largest. Bull sharks and tiger sharks have attacked humans in different circumstances. Contrary to popular belief, the great white shark featured in Steven Spielberg’s famous movie has never attacked a human.
