For this project, I chose to dissect a shark, because I was interested in seeing the contrast between a shark's and a human's anatomy. Sharks have very different body structures than humans do, with a few notable similarities. Both sharks and humans have livers for cleaning out their bodies, but a shark's is much larger, due to them ingesting much more toxins and harmful substances in the ocean. Additionally, a shark's liver utilizes it's large amount of oil to even increase buoyancy. The interesting things in a shark allowed me to learn a lot about human anatomy in how different we are from sharks and other animals. One interesting subject is the brain. Instinctual animals like sharks don't think very much, meaning they rely much more on their senses and animal instincts than humans do. Because of this, our brains form much differently than these animals. Dissecting and analyzing an animal's brain can illustrate a lot about the way they live and how they conduct work.
