Thank you Marty. Sharks of all kinds are in the news these days. They are important in most marine ecosystems.

Noted and read with interest. It may not be care2-politically-correct, but it is fascinating, the tools that have been fashioned with sharks' teeth and which were legitimately useful to many populations of people.

oh my, the man accelerates the extinctions of species faster than natural course of evolution. What a pity.
