The Sharp Nose of the Shark

Sharks have an exceptionally sharp sense of smell. Their chemically sensitive nerve endings connect to a special part of the brain called the olfactory area. A special feature of sharks is that their olfactory areas take up a very large portion of their brains. They can smell blood underwater too. Sharks are sometimes described as `swimming noses.`
