Voice: Did you know that there are over 400 kinds or species of sharks? Some are no larger than your hand while others grow to the length of a bus. Their skeleton is made of cartilage, the same flexible material in your nose and ears. Sharks are good hunters. Some eat fish with their sharp teeth while others prey upon crabs and shrimp. These sharks have flatter teeth. They may look tough and scary but the don't often bite humans.
