We as humans often say ‘the eyes are the windows to the soul’ ~ yet in all honesty ~ many of us tend to dismiss the fact that most living creatures on this Planet have eyes ~ whether simple or complex… So why is it that we ‘mistreat’ and so often ‘torture’ other souls???
This breathing hole located above and behind the eye of many sharks allows the ‘life force’ of the Ocean to flow over the gills and bathe the shark with much needed oxygen and allows circulation and feeding and foraging simultaneously for food ~ often in sandy or muddy habitat.
It is the ‘spiracle and eye’ of a brown-banded bamboo shark.
The skin is rough like sandpaper.
Comprised of what are termed ‘dermal denticles’ ~ literally a ‘modified armament’ of small teeth over the body…
This armour seems ‘little protection’ from what can only be described as a ‘sinful slaughter’ of Gods wondrous creatures for the Fin Industry.
