to Joseph ("Joey"???) Lawrence for emailing The Pit
with some improved Shark Facts
"Not only can sharks not stop suddenly. They can not stop at all. To stay alive, sharks must swim continually to keep a flow of water going through their gills. They don't actually have true "gills" like other fish. By the way sharks are not considered fish either because they lack a true skeleton. Their skeleton is made up of cartilage. How do I know this? Must have studied sharks at some time in grade school."
We love shark snobs around here. Sharks are pretty cool. How do I know this? Must have watched Shark Week for 25 years.
