Are sharks actually smooth? I keep seeing people saying they aren't but also others saying they are and now I'm confused :(
sharkskin is completely covered with tiny tiny grooved teeth, which gives it some interesting properties!
these denticles are aligned in one direction with the jagged edges pointing back towards the tail, which breaks fluid mechanics in some weird completely bullshit ways that gives it basically no water resistance in that one direction.
Tumblr media
this, in effect, means that sharks are INCREDIBLY smooth and can go as fast as they like in any direction, provided that the direction in question is forward.
Tumblr media
however, if the shark tried to go backwards, or if you ran your hand down it the wrong way, the opposite effect would take place- the sharp edges of the denticles would create SUPER water resistance and shred the bejeesus out of your hand.
Tumblr media
if you're going to pet a shark, make sure you go from the head back!

Day 13 - Shark Festival At the beginning of school holidays, children waltz and celebrate the Jellysummer, the day when the jellyfish spawn fill the sea with their presence. But it seems there are more jellyfish than last year...🎊✨

Sharktober Day 15: Shark Yoga
While this looks like a yoga pose, many shark species make threat displays to other sharks— and human divers! Some sharks arch their backs, flare gills, and bare their teeth— but most simply and rigidly drop their pectoral fins to say ‘please back off!’

Sharktober Day 15: Yoga
A mobile game inspired by a very old drawing of Sheila doing yoga. Match the shape of the hole in the wall so you don't get pushed off the platform!

I don't have many headcanons for general shark other then:
- Red/pink sails within the royal family is some-what common, Shark (as well as Anemone) is one of the Seawings who shows this trait.
- Shark-eyes and Spikey-brows hehehehhe
