This shark week – why not try identifying which sharks on screen are boys and girls? Male sharks have two finger-like parts underneath their body called ‘claspers’. Females instead have an opening called a ‘cloaca’. When you watch shark week do you see more males or females?
The best time to see this is looking up at the shark as it goes overhead, or when a scientist turns a shark over to look underneath.
By learning more about these animals we discover more about our effects on them, the environment and our whole planet. Humans are killing far too many of these very important animals, so learn about them, tell your friends how great they are and how important they are.
Save Our Sharks!
