Shark: apex predators

Fact: Sharks have diversified into over 500 speciece . They range in size from the small  dwarf lanternshark  (Etmopterus perryi), a deep sea species of only 17 centimeters (6.7 in) in length, to the whale shark (Rhincodon typus), the largest fish in the world, which reaches approximately 12 metres (39 ft) in length. Sharks are found in all seas and are common to depths of 2,000 metres (6,600 ft). They generally do not live in freshwater although there are a few known exceptions, such as the bull shark and the river shark, which can survive and be found in both seawater and freshwater. Sharks have a covering of dermal denticles that protects their skin from damage and parasites in addition to improving their  fluid dynamics. They have several sets of replaceable teeth.

Well-known species such as the  great white shark,tiger shark, blue shark, mako shark, and the hammerhead shark  are apex predators-organisms at the top of their underwater  food chain. Many shark populations are threatened by human activities.
