This continually evolving website about sharks was developed by Ben S. Roesch, a zoology master's student at the University of Guelph who is studying biochemistry and comparative physiology of elasmobranchs, the subclass of fishes that include sharks, rays, and skates. The website offers a collection interesting shark information and articles such as an overview of shark taxonomy, an article on the biology and behaviour of the Oceanic Whitetip, an article on the biology of the Shortfin Mako, and a fascinating report written by a diver who was attacked by a great white shark. Other site features include an image of an enormous nurse shark, an article about the Goblin shark, and an article by Mr. Roesch titled _A Critical Evaluation of the Supposed Contemporary Existence of Carcharodon megalodon_. This site also links to shark features on other websites such as the Florida Museum of Natural History's site on megamouth sharks.
