About Blue Sharks
Inhabiting the deep, warm waters of Earth's temperate and tropical oceans, the blue shark (Prionace glauca) feeds primarily on small fish and squid, and rarely attacks humans. Blue sharks can reach a length of 12.5 feet and can weigh as much as 205 pounds.
The blue shark is found worldwide and off the coasts of every continent except
Antarctica, making it the most widely distributed animal in the world. Blue sharks often school, or collect and travel in groups, and have earned the name wolves of the sea by mariners watching packs of blue sharks tracking their ships.
While young blue sharks are often preyed upon by larger sharks, such as the great white and tiger, healthy adult blue sharks have only one consistent predator humans. Blue sharks are the most heavily fished species of shark, with 10 to 20 million killed each year, primarily for their fins (for shark-fin soup), skin (for leather), and livers (for oil).This blog is sponsored by Tapir and Friends Animal Store.
