Cookie Cutter Shark Photos - A Small Shark With A Distinctive Bite

Top Right Solid Corner

The cookie cutter shark, Isistius brasiliensis, is named after the cookie-shaped wounds that it leaves on the bodies of larger animals. It is a small, slow-swimming shark, also known as the cigar shark due to its brown color and elongated shape. It is also known as the luminous shark because it emits a green glow. The cookie cutter shark grows to be about 20 inches long and has a blunt snout, large eyes with green pupils, prominent triangular teeth on the lower jaw, and small teeth on the upper jaw. It lives worldwide in deep water at depths of about 3,300 feet. The cookie-cutter shark eats by taking round bites out of its victims with its long teeth and powerful jaws, mostly attacking large fish, dolphin and whales. It's lips attach to its victim like a suction cup, and then it spins to cut out a cookie-shaped plug of flesh from the larger animal. It is harmless to humans.
