SHARK WEEK

To show my support for SHARK WEEK, I am posting a fun fact about SHARKS!

This post is for my SHARK fans out there (Miss Kayla and Alexis, I love ya gals!)

Did you KNOW??

Scientists can tell the age of a shark by counting the rings on its vertebrae (similar to how they can tell how old a tree is by counting its rings!)
But for some species particularly, it is difficult to count and interpret the growth bands. The task becomes more complicated as the shark ages. The growth bands narrow and the boundaries between them can blur.

QUESTION:

My Favorite shark is the HAMMERHEAD!  What is your favorite shark?
