World's Biggest Shark Has Teeth on Its Eyeballs, Scientists Discover

Quote:The biggest sharks in the world have tiny teeth all over their eyeballs, scientists have discovered. In analyzing the eyes of whale sharks, which can reach up to 60 feet in length, researchers found them to be covered in "dermal denticles" that help protect them from damage.

Dermal denticles are known to cover shark skin. They are tiny v-shaped scales that are structurally minute teeth. According to the Smithsonian Institution's Ocean Portal, shark skin is covered in dermal denticles to decrease turbulence and drag, helping them to swim quieter and faster.

In a study published in the journal PLOS One, researchers led by Taketeru Tomita, from the Okinawa Churashima Research Center, Japan, found dermal denticles on the eyes of whale sharks—a filter-feeding species known for its unique spotted patterned skin.


So, now you know.

Is that supposed to be evidence of "intelligent" design?

Is this the original "evil eye" I've heard about for so long?

Get back to me when they find eyeball lips.

A friend of mine termed a certain look I occasionally gave as, "the melt." I'm usually pretty light-hearted, but not always.

In our house, it's "The Dad Glare". I'm not that harsh, but when someone is cutting up, I get the look, and when they see it, it's like "Oh, shit", and they settle down.

My dad taught me "the Look". It's somewhere between Clint Eastwood and "that's your ass".
