Shark Behavior

Sharks have keen olfactory senses. They also have a sensory organ called the "ampullae of Lorenzini" which they use to "feel" the electrical field coming from its prey. Sharks are carnivores. Most of them are solitary hunters, but even solitary sharks meet for breeding or on rich hunting grounds. Sharks eat fish, squid, shellfish, marine mammals, plankton and even other sharks. Sharks don't chew their food and may have up to 3,000 teeth at one time.
