Skin, and why its important.

Although having the name “Great White” Great White Sharks are mostly grey, but have a white under belly. While looking smooth to touch, these enormous fish have scales too, but they are called Denticles. These Denticles are important because the can depict how fast a shark and move through water huinting its prey. They look like teeth, instead of scales, and decrease drag and turbulance. This adaptation allows the Great White Shark to swim more quickly and quietly.
