Do you know how do a shark thrusts its jaw forward?
The sharks has powerful upper and lower jaws. Gill arches and vertebral column are made of firm but flexible cartilage. The upper jaw is loosely suspended from the skull by more cartilage. This unusual system lets the shark detach its jaw from its skull to drop down and thrust its jaw forward, taking large powerful bites from its prey.

Did you know the #Sharks have cavity proof teeth

#Shark teeth are covered in fluoride, making them cavity-resistant. The enamel is made up of a chemical called fluoroapatite, which is resistant to acid produced by bacteria. This, combined with the fact that most sharks replace their teeth throughout their lives, means that sharks have excellent dental health.
