    So, Shark Week is coming later this month, so this one is all about the selachimorpha.

    Pick a pic of a shark (not from a movie or TV show, especially not of a fake shark like Jaws, though nature documentaries are obviously allowed), put it inside the usual size limitations (200x200 pixels and/or 1 Mb data), and there you go.
    For now, one entry per user should do. Might crank that up later on, depending on participation, but for now, should be enough.

    Only sharks as a whole or also parts of them? (not Schillerlocken, of course, but for example a tooth or a fin)

    Yeah, sure, tooth, fin, eye, as long as it's part of a shark (or used to be), it's fine.

    ^thanks :)
    Since you already posted my favourite shark I'll counter with an unusual perspective. This is a fossile shark tooth as viewed from inside the shark's mouth (it's one from fairly back on the left upper jaw). The holes are natural: they are the points where the blood vessels and nerves entered the tooth. (handy, too - I occasionally wear the tooth on a thin leather strap)

    Okay, awesome pic, but at the risk of walking into a catfish joke, I gotta ask: what's with the 'meow' caption?

    Every cat I've known ran for its life just from the noise of a vacuum, so this gets the grade:
