Sharks Skin

Shark skin

I’ve known that sharks don’t have “scales” for a while, and that they have something called denticles (named for their tooth like appearance) instead. However, until today I had never seen them visualised. Thank you to IFLS for linking to this excellence image of shark skin under the microscope, I just wanted to pread this great image further!
