“Sharks are the most hardy and adaptable of any large animal ever created by evolution. Some smaller species like lampreys, horseshoe crabs, sponges, and jellyfish have been around for longer but they seem somehow like anomalies or accidents. On the other hand, several types of very big sharks like the anvil shark, goblin shark, frilled shark, and possibly even the greenland shark have been around for forever and a day. No other species can match this record. They have survived everything that has been thrown at them including volcanic eruptions, ice ages, meteor impacts, parasites, bacteria, viruses, acidification, and other catastrophes that have lead to mass extinctions. By the time the dinosaurs appears, sharks had already existed for eons. And they continued to thrive even as the dinosaurs and countless other species went extinct.”
