The common thresher and bigeye thresher sharks have a similar mechanism for maintaining an elevated body temperature. Sharks rarely attack humans. A modified slit called a spiracle lies just behind the eye, which assists the shark with taking in water during respiration and plays a major role in bottom—dwelling sharks. First-Hand Encounters with Killers of the Sea Brendan McAloon Sharks Never Sleep takes you around the world to meet shark-attack survivors, shark lovers and shark hunters, who tell us of the primal fear of being eaten alive by a wild animal, the unimaginable grief of losing a loved one and extraordinary stories of encounters with sharks. This tiny shark only grows to about 8 inches and uses the light as a form of camouflage, lighting up it's stomach to imitate the light that filters down through the ocean from the sun or moon above. Scientists say that asexual reproduction in the wild is rare, and probably a last-ditch effort to reproduce when a mate is not present.
According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, sleep is "the natural periodic suspension of consciousness during which the powers of the body are restored. This usually consists of exaggerated swimming movements, and can vary in intensity according to the threat level. Oxygen-rich water flows through the gills during movement allowing the shark to breathe. This was likely a deliberate choice, and although she gives the reader a basic introduction to shark mortality due to fisheries on page 6, I would have liked to see her return to this in closing the book, as the gap between human-caused shark mortality and shark-caused human mortality is insane. Already feared as a dangerous predator in an environment where humans are not in their element the movie Jaws drove this fear to stratospheric heights and painted a portrait of these fish as ruthless man-eating monsters. It is thought that most sharks live years, though the actual lifespan depends on the breed.
Jennifer Kennedy Updated August 07, Sharks need to keep water moving over their gills so that they receive oxygen. Indianapolis Zoo : It is unclear how sharks sleep. Shark species that need to swim constantly to keep water moving over their gills seem to have active periods and restful periods, rather than undergoing deep sleep as we do. The valve provides a long surface area, requiring food to circulate inside the short gut until fully digested, when remaining waste products pass into the cloaca. In these sharks, a strip of aerobic red muscle located near the center of the body generates the heat, which the body retains via a countercurrent exchange mechanism by a system of blood vessels called the rete mirabile "miraculous net".

This membrane covers the eyes while hunting and when the shark is being attacked. Resting on the Bottom Sharks such as Caribbean reef sharks, nurse sharks, and lemon sharks have been seen lying on the ocean bottom and in caves, but they seem to continue to watch what is going on around them during this time, so it's not definite that they are sleeping.
Spiracles are reduced or missing in active pelagic sharks. However, some species, including the great white shark Carcharodon carchariasdo not have this membrane, but instead roll their eyes backwards to protect them when striking prey. The spiny dogfish's spinal cord, rather than its brain, coordinates swimming, so it is possible for a spiny dogfish to continue to swim while sleeping.
The common thresher and bigeye thresher sharks have a similar mechanism for maintaining an elevated body temperature. The jaw's surface in comparison to the shark's vertebrae and gill arches needs extra support due to its heavy exposure to physical stress and its need for strength.
It is worth noting that the biggest shark of all, the massive forty-foot long Whale sharkconsumes plankton, which are some of the smallest creatures in the ocean. Most live 20 to 30 years. The differences in biology between species mean that mitigation measures that work against one species might not repel another, or even attract them.
Whether they actually rest or dream, and how resting varies among species, we don't really know. A shark's offspring is called a pup. Some sharks such as the nurse shark have spiracles that force water across their gills allowing for stationary rest.
