SHARK WEEK BEGINS!

Let’s start off Shark Week small, but with a bit of light…specifically, the Dwarf Lantern Shark!

The Dwarf Lantern Shark is the tiniest known species of shark; however, because of its being present only on the upper continental slopes off Colombia and Venezuela, at a depth of 928–1,440 feet, little has been learned about this wee member of the dogfish family. It reaches a length of only eight inches and, like many deep-sea fish, its skin cells contain light-producing photophores that make it glow in the dark to attract prey. When taken out of its deep sea environment, it can be seen as a dark brownish grey with black markings on its back.

Many people continue to think of sharks as man-eating beasts. Sharks are enormously powerful and wild creatures, but you’re more likely to be killed by your kitchen toaster than a shark!  ~Ted Danson, founder of Oceana
