1. Basically, sharks have a built-in Google Maps system that can take him to whatever “meal” he’s looking for that night.
Sharks read the earth’s magnetic field like a map - the ocean current creates an electrical field, and so does every living thing. Sharks have electrical receptors, like pores, the lower jaw and snout. This sense is so powerful it can detect prey that’s completely buried in sand or mud on the ocean floor.
3. From an early age, sharks have no love for anyone; even when it comes to family.
When two baby sand sharks are born, the larger one eats its sibling. This is called uterine cannibalism.
5. With the size of their liver, sharks could drink circles around anyone.
A shark’s liver makes up as much as 25% of its body weight. This helps sharks float better in the water because liver oil is less dense than water.
7. Sharks are mocking us by basically attacking with their eyes closed.
Great white sharks protect their eyes when they attack by rolling them up into their eye sockets before attacking.
9. You will never out-compete a shark when it comes to dating

11. No worries, if you date some sharks, they won’t be worrying about kids anytime soon.

13. Sharks like to think before they speak.
A shark’s jaw is not attached to its cranium. Because its mouth is situated on the underside of its head, a shark can temporarily dislocate its jaw and jut it forward to take a bite.
15. Women don’t have much to worry about when it comes to sharks
