Venture into a world of ludicrous-looking, bizarrely behaved and downright Shocking Sharks to discover a new side to these feared fish. The tasseled wobbegong uses frilled camouflage to blend into coral reef surroundings. A cigar-shaped shark has the fitting name of the cookiecutter for the way its circular jaw tears flesh from its prey. The horn shark's square, blunt head gives it its name, and the way the epaulette shark walks along the ocean floor is what makes this shark so weird.
