Shark Facts-Greenland Shark

It's nice to learn something about sharks and today was no exception for us here at the office.

After watching a show last night about Greenland sharks that are eaten after being buried in the ground for a year (dis-gusting) we went looking for more info on these unlikely cold water critters.

Here's your fun facts for the day and a cautionary tale for divers in thick wetsuits who may or may not look like a seal.

1.The Greenland Shark is one of the largest sharks in the world, it rivals the Great White in size growing to over 21 feet in length and weighing up to 2000 lbs.

2.When the prey gets close the shark inhales and is able to suck food in from 3 feet away.

Editors Note: We know a few dive masters who can do that same trick in Florida.
