Sharks are found in all oceans the world. The type of shark found will depend on the water's temperature. A shark has to keep moving because it needs to breathe through its gills to keep alive.
When sharks are hungry, they look for food. Different sharks eat different food. Harmless sharks eat plankton but harmful sharks eat meat.
Sharks have up to forty two babies (which are called pups) at a time. When the pups are born, they leave straight away because the mother shark does not have teats. Some sharks have their pups in different ways, some lay eggs while others have them alive. When they are born, they need to defend themselves because they have no help them.
