Chomp Chomp Chomp TIME TO LEARN!

Danaet as the Hammerhead Shark: The positioning of the eyes give the shark good binocular vision, as well as 360-degree vision in the vertical plane, meaning they can see above and below them at all times. Hammerheads are one of the few animals that acquire a tan from prolonged exposure to sunlight. Tanning occurs when a hammerhead is in shallow waters or close to the surface for long periods. They are gentle and inquisitive, much like Danaet.

Glittir as the Black Tipped Reef Shark: Timid and skittish, the blacktip reef shark is difficult to approach and seldom poses a danger to humans unless roused by food, however it does becomes more excited and "confident" in the presence of others of its species. The blacktip reef shark inhabits coral reefs and shallow waters in the Indo-Pacific. Fast-swimming and active, the blacktip reef shark may be encountered alone or in large groups, where they are not segregated by sex. Blacktip reef sharks exhibit strong fidelity to particular areas, where they may remain for up to several years.

Juju as the Tiger Shark: The tiger shark gets its name from the dark spots or stripes on its back and sides. It is a solitary, mostly night-time hunter with a wide range of prey, including crustaceans, fish, seals, birds, smaller sharks, squid, turtles, sea snakes, and dolphins. While the tiger shark is considered to be one of the sharks most dangerous to humans, the attack rate is surprisingly low. All tiger sharks generally swim slowly, which, combined with cryptic coloration, makes them difficult for prey to detect. Despite their sluggishness, tiger sharks are one of the strongest swimmers. Once the shark has come close, a speed burst allows it to reach the prey before it can escape. The tiger shark is considered to be sacred na ʻaumakua (ancestor spirits) by some native Hawaiians, who think their eyes have special seeing powers. This aligns with the general known facts about sharks and their highly developed senses.

So class, what did you learn today?

Shark love FTW! And I'm with Scaramouche. I need one of these costumes now. I'd never get out of it- just roll everywhere as a landshark.

I dont think I have ever wanted to shove my head into the gaping maw of a shark more than I do right now. It is the GREATEST invention. And why it isn't available at the local mercantile is a CRIME against NATURE itself. Can you imagine the designs that could spin off of the shark one though? Bring on the gaters, nemo fish, and earthworms sleeping bags. How is this not available to the masses yet?

THANK YOU!!

How could I not do Shark Week pictures this year? What with Hector and...my sharkie youknowofwhomIspeak.

And, yeah! I was a little shocked that the characters came out so well with their designated species. I LAV THEM!! Also, Hammerheads ROCKS MY SOCKS. Do you remember that cartoon where they did like...teenage mutant ninja sharks? In the 90s? I freaking loved the Hammerhead character.

But now I love Great Whites. :I

Thank you baby!
