A Guide to Sharks

  • The Great White: The biggest shark and possibly the most famous, the great white has no natural predators besides the killer whale.
  • Whale Shark: Wait, no, this is the biggest shark. But it just eats plankton or something, so who cares.
  • Tiger Shark: These bad boys love three things: eating, warm climates, and typically reaching maturity at lengths of about 6.6-9.8 ft.
  • Bull Shark: I don’t know anything about this one. I think it’s big though.
  • Mako: I don’t know about this one either.
  • Blue Shark: Nothing.
  • Basking Shark: Nope.
  • Hammerhead: Okay, cool, I know this one. It’s got a hammer shaped head. I think there are multiple species.
  • Goblin Shark: The goblin shark is a deep sea dweller, and most scientists agree that they are the summoners of the great Cthulhu.
  • Lemon Shark: According to National Geographic, it’s supposed to be yellowish. But I saw one in the ocean once and it wasn’t really that yellow, so the name’s kinda stupid.
  • Megamouth Shark: I think this is from the SyFy channel.
  • Dogfish: I’m pretty sure this is a whole family of sharks. They don’t eat catfish, as far as I know, but that’d be pretty cool if they did.
  • Bigeye Sixgill Shark: Apparently there are other sharks with bigeyes and other sharks with six gills, which made it important for these things to have the two descriptors forever affixed to their name.
  • Blacktip Reef Shark: Black in color, but just a little bit.
  • Horn Shark: I got nothing.
  • Japanese Sawshark: Still nothing.
  • Leafscale Gulper Shark: Sounds made up.
  • Copper Shark: I think this is just a Tiger Shark again. They look the same.
  • Bronze Whaler Shark: A very sharky shark, with a noticeable amount of sharkness around the shark parts of the shark.
  • Zebra Shark: Sharky, but with a hint of zebra. Yet spotted for some reason.
  • Zebra Bullhead Shark: This one actually has stripes, but Zebra Shark was already taken.
  • Frilled Shark: The frills are subtle.
  • Bahamas Sawshark: It’s probably like the Japanese Sawshark, but don’t quote me on it.
  • Broadnose Sevengill Shark: The people who name sharks are really bad at their jobs.
  • Burmese Bamboo Shark: Probably a shark.
