Greenland sharks are one of my favorite animals and my favorite shark. They’re so cute and fascinating. They look like rocks and they always have this long string (parasite) coming out of their eyes. And they look toothless

Jurriën
Jurriën - 5 years ago
+chanctonbury63 Scientists also caught and tagged a few young specimens. They were caught again years later and had not grown a whole lot. Coupled with the maximum size of adult specimens, this growth rate suggests those at maximum size (between 10-20 feet) are VERY old. It is, however, not known if they experience a growth spurt at any point in their lives.
Chris Rhyner
Chris Rhyner - 5 years ago
Mostly by its length and it's growth rate. I've been told they grow at a rate of about an inch or less a year, so a ten foot long one is around 100 years old or more.

That website is wrong.  Frilled sharks (Chlamydoselachus anguineus) are in a different Genus, Family and Order from Greenland sharks (Somniosus microcephalus: Family - Somniosidae, Order - Squaliformes).  Trust me, I study this species - it has FIVE gill slits. "Order Summary for Squaliformes: Two dorsal fins, with or without spines; anal fin absent; five gill slits; spiracles present; nictitating lower eyelid absent. Many species are known from deep water."  http://www.fishbase.org/summary/OrdersSummary.php?order=Squaliformes
Leonardo Da Vinci
Leonardo Da Vinci - 6 years ago
+brokebacksharker Lmao yes they do

"Frilled sharks, Chlamydoselachus anguineus (Garman, 1884), aka frill sharks, frill-gilled sharks, Greenland sharks, scaffold sharks, and silk sharks are members of the most ancient frill and cow sharks order, Hexanchiformes. Hexanchiform sharks have a single dorsal fin, either six or seven gill slits (versus the 5 found in all other existing sharks), and no nictitating membranes (protective third eyelids)"

There is no evidence that the Bible even exists. People go "This can't all have happened naturally, there must be a creator." and then for whatever reason, they make the logical jump that the Bible reveals the God we have despite all its inconsistencies, even though it's more than likely that if there were a God, he wouldn't have visited us and we wouldn't know enough to write a book about him. People only believe in the Christian God because of their culture; it's no more believable than all of the other gods from every other religion in the world, and yet people follow it without thinking about WHY.

Did you know tht the Greenland shark is the closest living relative to megladon not great whites as idiots like to believe so if a megaladon did exist still it could be so deep we have never seen it and only comes up to sun bathe once in awhile probably to be cleaned by parasite eating fish
brokebacksharker
brokebacksharker - 6 years ago
What?!!  You shouldn't call people "idiots" when you have no idea what you are talking about.  Carcharodon carcharias (white shark) and Carcharodon megaladon (megatooth) are in the same Genus so they are VERY closely related.  Somniosus microcephalus (Greenland shark) is not even in the same Order as these other two, about as unrelated as two sharks can get!  Also, megalodon was a shallow-water species, that's why you find the teeth inshore inland in places that used to be underwater when sea levels were higher.
