Cool Shark Adaptations!

Fun FactsMarine Life

Happy shark week everyone!! Let’s celebrate sharks and their cool adaptations. For example, did you know that some sharks can’t throw up? Instead they spit their whole stomachs out, shake it out, and put it back inside their bodies. They can also do this on the opposite end. If they eat something with too many bones and it is irritating their bowel, they can poop their guts out, shake it out, then put it back inside their bodies. Can you imagine if that happened in humans? Bulimia would be quite the ordeal.
