Cartilaginous Fish | Chondrichthyes

Chondrichthyes refers to a class of fish or vertebrates that feature paired fins and an internal skeleton composed of cartilage. Noticeable characteristics of cartilaginous fish include the capability of numerous species to breathe through gills and spiracles, skin dressed in dermal denticles to give protection, a small brain with several sensory organs, and an adaptive immune system. Additionally, these fish lack swim bladders, are often predatory, and show jaws and paired appendages. They are likewise an excellent source of food for humans. Chondrichthyes are further divided into Elasmobranchii and Holocephali and can be found both in freshwater and marine environments.

Thresher Shark
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Thresher Shark compared to an average person

The Thresher Shark (Alopias Vulpinus) is a shark species known for its extremely long tail that they use while hunting for food. They can be found along the coasts of North America and Asia in the Northern Pacific Ocean. Thresher Sharks typically eat meat, liver, skin, and fins.

They are not often involved in shark attacks, but are hunted for their skin that is turned into leather and the oil in their liver that can be used for vitamins. Thresher sharks have been identified as vulnerable to extinction since the year 2007.

Thresher Sharks have a total length between 10.5’-20’ (3.2-6.1 m) and an overall weight in the range of 500-775 lb (227-352 kg). The typical lifespan of the Thresher Shark is between 20-50 years.

Great White Shark
Dimensioned size comparison drawing of a Great White Shark compared to the size of an average human scuba diver

The Great White Shark is a large mackerel shark that is found in coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The species is also referred to as the great white, white shark, or white pointer for its notable size. Other distinguishing characteristics include its robust, large, conical snout, rows of serrated teeth behind the main ones, and large eyes with deep blue irises.

Further, it displays countershading by having a white underside and grey dorsal area. The great white shark has no natural predators and it is responsible for more recorded human bite incidents than any other shark.

The typical female Great White Shark has an overall length of 15’-21’ (4.57-6.4 m), with males at lengths of 11’-13’ (3.35-3.96 m). An average Great White Shark weighs between 1500-2400 lb (680-1090 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 30-70 years.

Basking Shark
Comparison illustration of the size of a Basking Shark to a typical person

The Basking Shark (Cetorhinus Maximus) is the second largest shark, after the whale shark. It has a gray-brown coloring with marble-like skin pattern. They are found in all temperate oceans of the world. Basking Sharks do not hibernate, are active all year, and do not stay in one place for more than a couple months.

During the winter, Basking Sharks swim to deeper waters. Basking sharks are filter feeders that feed passively while swimming and typically eat zooplankton, copepods, barnacles, decapod larvae, fish eggs, and shrimp. The Basking Shark is considered to be endangered.

Basking Sharks have a total length between 22’-35’ (6.7-10.7 m) and an overall weight in the range of 8800-13200 lb (4000-6000 kg). The typical lifespan of the Basking Shark is Up to 50 years.

Bull Shark
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Bull Shark compared to an average person

The Bull Shark (Carcharhinus Leucas) is a shark with a gray top, white underside, and find with dark tips. They were named after their short snout. Bull Sharks are most typically found in warm waters along the coasts or rivers and can live in both salt and fresh water—where they often are known to travel long distances up rivers.

The Bull Shark has an aggressive nature and are considered to be one of the most dangerous sharks in the world. Bull Sharks typically eat fish, small sharks, dolphins, stingrays, birds, and turtles. They are near threatened by extinction.

Bull Sharks have a total length between 7’-11.5” (2.1-3.5 m) and an overall weight in the range of 400-700 lb (181-318 kg). The typical lifespan of the Bull Shark is between 12-25 years.

Goblin Shark
Scale illustration of an average Goblin Shark with dimensions for height and length compared to a human

The Goblin Shark (Mitsukurina Owstoni) is a species of shark that is often referred to as a living fossil as their ancestry can be traced back extensively. They have sharp tiny teeth that are arranged in multiple rows and a long and flat snout that resembles a sword blade. Goblin Sharks have a unique protruding jaw that extends rapidly to catch prey.

Goblin sharks live in the deep waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian ocean. They generally eat fish, cephalopods, and crustaceans near the sea floor. Not a lot is known about these sharks since they are mostly solitary and are rarely seen.

Goblin Sharks have a total length between 5’-12.5’ (1.5-3.8 m) and an overall weight in the range of 330-463 lb (150-210 kg). The typical lifespan of the Goblin Shark is between 30-35 years.
