Cookiecutter Shark


This is a bit of an oldie that I forgot to post earlier this year.  I think I originally drew this in April, and then promptly forgot about it.  

Cookiecutter Sharks have to be one of the strangest looking fish in the world.  Apparently what they do is swim up to large prey, scoop a large round bite out of their side, and quickly swim away.  They have even attacked humans in that manner.  Big ouch!

    1. Yeah. When you hear about the way they hunt their weird face seems a bit more terrifying though. Apparently they just sort of scoop out a bit of flesh by latching on, and swiveling their bodies like a melon baller.

      Thanks!
