Few animals are as fascinating as sharks. They're one of the oldest creatures on the planet, with evolutionary roots that began hundreds of millions of years ago. Plus, there are hundreds of species, and each one boasts a variety of unique characteristics. Some are terrifying creatures that dominate the sea and devour everything in sight, while others are basically sea kittens. They can be extremely social and swim in schools with hundreds of other sharks, or they can be introverted loners who avoid all contact. Whatever your nature is, there's a shark species that is remarkably similar to you. Answer these questions and find out exactly which one you are!
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
You know how humans were traditionally thought to have five senses, and then we realized that we actually have many more? Biologists made the same discovery with sharks! Sharks share many of the same senses as humans, like touch, taste, and smell. However, they also possess senses that we do not. For example, the lateral line allows a shark to detect movements and vibrations from the surrounding water. Sharks also have ampullae of Lorenzini, which possess sensory receptors for touch, pressure, temperature, salinity, and both electric and magnetic fields. Researchers still aren’t sure of the full purpose of the shark’s pit organ, so sharks may still have more senses to discover.
