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

Top Right Solid Corner

The cookiecutter shark, Isistius brasiliensis, eats by taking round bites out of its victims with its long teeth and powerful jaws, mostly attacking large fish, dolphin and whales. The belly of the cookie cutter shark has a small patch of bioluminescence on it. This is thought to lure fish to it in the dark, deep ocean environment where the fish see only the patch and think the prey is small. When the predatory fish tries to strike at the shark, the shark strikes back to gain a meal. The cookiecutter reproduces by aplacental viviparity, or ovoviviparity, which means the pups hatch from eggs and develop inside the female's body. There is no placenta to nourish the pups.
