Fish Day Wednesday

Harrrrr Mateys
Yer Cap'n be looking for a shark to honor the SKS. There not be many sharks that fit this bill but yer Cap'n find this shark Harrrrr. It be the False Cat Shark. No disrespect to me honored mateys of the SKS but this be the dumbest shark yer Cap'n ever found Harrrr. The False Cat Shark also be know as the Dumb Shark Harrrrrr.
Now fur the facts. This be a rare shark. He lives fairly deep, from 600 to 4,800 feet Harrrr. He eats lobster, crabs, octopus, squid, and small fish Harrrr. If ye go fishing for them, ye won't get any money from them unless you catch several and take them to a university that wants to study them. These sharks have no economic value, lousy bottom feeders.
This Shark is too dumb to have a Danger rating because of its bottom dwelling habits and lack of proximity to man, cat or Siberian Husky Pirate. Harrrrr.
So there ye have the False Cat Fish Harrrrr.

Cap'n Maverick the Pirate
P.S. Yer Cap'n is going to the Nationals in Chattanooga TN next week. Yer Cap'n is going to have pics on his blog during Fish Day Wednesday next week but will return to yer regularly scheduled finny facts in two weeks. Harrrrrrr. Yer Cap'n be so excited Harrr.

Jumping Fish

Harrrrr Mateys
It be Fish Day Wednesday Harrrrrr. Today Yer Cap'n decided to do the shark that has been int the movies and are in Cape Cod right now Harrrrrr.
The Great White Shark also known as White, White-Death, Killer, Man Eater, White-pointer, Blue-pointer Shark, and Jaws Harrrr.

This be a picture of Jaws Harrrrr look at the teeth Harrrrr.

Look how big this guy is Harrrrr. He can jump very high with large amounts of force Harrrrr.

This be a close up of the Great Whites Jaws Harrrrr. He also has a very big nose in yer Cap'n opinion Harrrrr.

Glad I am not this guy Harrrrrrr!!!!!!!
Now for lots of facts about this big shark Harrrrrr. Great White Sharks range in size from 16 feet to 25 feet Harrrr that is big Harrr. It would appear that a full grown average adult will be over 4 to 5 tons Harrrrrr. If ye think of that it is weighs more that a semi truck would weigh Harrrrr.
This is a cool fact also on April 21, 1959 Alfred Dean of Australia caught a 16' 10" great white with a rod and real it is estimated to weight 2,664 lbs and had a girth of 114" Harrrrrr. Way to go Alfred Harrrrr.
Great Whites do not have nictitating membrane like a lot of the other shark species when they got attack the eye rolls back in the head and a membrane covers the eye Harrrr. If you find yer slevs face to face with these sharks go for the eye that is there week point Harrrrr and good luck Harrrr.
Now for the Danger Rating Harrrrr.
The Shark-O-Pedia tells Yer Cap'n in big bold letters Extremely Dangerous Harrrr. It be an unusual aggressive species Harrr. It has great power and deadly predictability. It be aggressive with a Nature killer instinct it has a deliberate purpose for caring out death and destruction Harrrrr. It does not circle its pray but it just comes in a strait line and attacks Harrrrr. If you are in an aria that has had some sightings of Great Whites like Cape Cod stay out of the water or make sure you are in a big boat Harrrrr. The movie Jaws was based on actual accounts of these great white shark attacks not all Hollywood fiction mateys Harrrrr.
Yer Cap'n thought after all of that he would share some videos with ye mateys one is real footage of the strength a great white yes both of the men in the cage lived Harrrr.
The other video is of a surfer that was attacked buy a great white He also lived Harrrrr.

Fish Day Wednesday

Harrrrrr Mateys
Today be Fish Day Wednesday Harrrrrrr.

This morning yer Cap'n wake up with a sweet tooth, harrr. So Yer Cap'n decided to do the Cookie Cutter Shark Harrrrr
Yer Cap'n think it should look like this ...maybe mom can make ye cookies shaped as shark Harrrr.

This be a real cookie cutter Mateys. How fun to have shark cookie that we can bite, Harrrrr.

But Mateys the real cookie cutter shark look like this Harrrrrr. Not very cute at all Harrrrrr. Look at the nasty big teeth it has Harrrrr.

Now for the Cookie Cutter Shark facts Harrrrrr. The body is shaped like a cigar Harrrrr. It is about two feet long Harrrrrr. The Danger rating of the Cookie Cutter Shark be zero as it poses no threat to us because of its deep water habits and its small size Harrrrrr. This ugly shark only be 2 feet long at the max, harrrrdly worth mentioning. Plus he stay in very deep water where no pirate would go.
So there ye have the Cookie Cutter Shark Harrrrr.
