Poodle Shark – 2

Although the poodle sharks are fearsome fighters they tend to be rather delicate and discerning eaters, tearing off only as much flesh as they thought they could eat at any time. They took this flesh to deep water where it is chewed thoroughly before returning to the fray.

The number of Poodle Sharks declined dramatically once other sharks realised that biting off the knobs of cartilage on the tail and fins disabled the Poodle Shark and meant it had difficulty swimming with injured fins and a badly bitten tail. Poodle Sharks are seldom seen in shore these days, but are undoubtedly still found in the deep waters of the southern oceans where food is plentiful and where swimming quickly is not that important.
