Shark Egg

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Shark is an English popular name for any individual of the group Selachoidei. Sharks are scaleless, and the skin usually rough. They are numerous in tropical seas, becoming scarcer as they recede from the warmer regions, a few only reaching the Arctic circle. They are rapid swimmers, with great power of endurance; the larger sharks are exclusively carnivorous, and some of them extremely dangerous to man. They scent their food from a distance, and are readily attracted by the smell of blood or decomposing bodies. The flesh of sharks is coarse, but it is sometimes eaten. Their rough skin is employed by joiners to polish fine-grained wood, and by cutlers to cover the hilts of swords to make them firmer in the grasp.
