This is a shortfin Mako shark. They are about 10 feet long. They have a short dorsal fin. You can see that some of the teeth actually grow out of their lip. Their teeth are about 2 inches long or longer. They are razor sharp. They eat smaller fish and squid. They are fierce preditors. They rarely attack people. As you can see the shark has black eyes. Other fish swim near them because when the Mako shark attacks and eats the food it leave scraps and the other fish eat that. They live near the top of the ocean. the shark has a great sense of smell for finding prey. The Mako shark lives mostly in the Pacific Ocean. I think the Mako shark is fierce but pretty cool too. I Hope you leave a comment on this shark. Dylan

  1. So, you’re saying this guy is a messy eater? And what’s with the name “short” when he’s 10 feet long…glad this one’s in the Pacific…if I was swimming and saw it in the water I would “mako” for the “shore-o.”
