SHARKWEEK: Pelagic Thresher by squeedgemonster SHARKWEEK: Pelagic Thresher by squeedgemonster
Shark Week marches on with today's shark, the Pelagic Thresher! Again, this is for ~lexuswolf's Shark Week Sketch Jam.

Dear god, these things are so freakin' cute. They're like... the fennec foxes of the shark world, or something. BIG OL' EYES, teeny li'l face, comically over-sized pectoral fins, and of course, that ridiculous tail. Perfect recipe for d'awwww.

Like many sharks, threshers take a long time to reach sexual maturity, and only produce a couple of pups at a time. Therefore, they are considered vulnerable by the IUCN as the population cannot withstand high levels of exploitation.

Go to DISCOVERY.COM/SAVETHESHARKS for more facts and information about sharks.
