          I learned many things about sharks. First, I learned that Great White Sharks have 20 rows of teeth. Second , I learned that Great White Sharks are the largest hunters.  Another thing  I learned was that Great White Sharks can swim about 40 miles per hour. Next, I learned that the Great White Sharks can grow nineteen feet long. Then, I learned that sharks have different kind of fins. Also, I learned that the shark’s skeleton can twist or turn because it’s made of cartilage, not bone. After that, I learned when the female shark has a baby, the baby will leave it’s mom.  Next, I learned that if one fish swims by a lot of sharks the sharks go crazy. Another thing I learned was that a shark’s teeth are suited for eating different kinds of food. Next , I learned  that a shark’s body shape is like a torpedo. After that, I learned that the back fins moves by using the  five fins on the sides.  Next, I learned that the mouth has to stay open so that the shark can breathe.  Then, I learned that sharks can see ten times better than people.  Next, I learned that there are 100 hammerhead sharks in one school.  After that, I learned that the Carcharodon Shark can live for fifteen long years.   Next, I learned that the Carcharodon Shark lived 15 million years ago.  Then, I learned that when sharks hunt they seek out sick animals.  Finally, I learned the Blue Shark’s back is blue .  Clearly you can see, I learned many things about sharks.
