How Does a Shark Adapt to Its Environment?

Answer

Sharks have special features that enable them to adapt to their environments. They have a special organ called rete mirable which helps them to keep their body temperatures above the water temperature. They are also able to detect other creatures in the water through electromagnetic fields with the help of organs called Ampullae of Lorenzini. This aids them in locating their prey.
