Surprising Sharks.

Some leap into the air. Some live at the bottom of the sea. Some attack humans. Some eat only plants and tiny sea animals. Some are as short as a pencil. Some are longer than a fire engine.

The hammerhead has a weird-shaped head. It loves to eat stingray. Being stung by the ray's poisonous tail spike doesn't seem to bother the hammerhead.

Sharks have many rows of teeth. When a tooth in the front row falls out, a back tooth moves up.
