Sharks are not just "giant swimming noses," study finds

Think sharks find their prey by scent alone, just like in the movies? Nope. New research done among Florida sharks finds that they use a combination of vision, touch, smell and other senses to track down food. “Our findings may surprise a lot of people,” said Dr. Jayne Gardiner, lead author of the study. "What impressed us most was not one particular sense, but the sharks’ ability to switch between multiple senses and the flexibility of their behavior.” [Video: Jayne Gardiner/Mote Marine Laboratory]
