Are sharks cartilage fish?
Sharks have cartilage.
They are Cartilage fish.
Yes, sharks do not have bones in their skeleton but they have cartilage Yes, sharks are fish with skeletal systems made from cartilage.
sharks have cartilage not bone
Boney fish have bones and sharks have cartilage as their skeleton.
Sharks are fish that do not have bones - instead they have cartilage.
Sharks and Rays
Sharks, rays and ratfish have cartilage but its not sharks. Boney fish (like their name suggests) have bone in the mix - but they still have a lot of cartilage.
Sharks and rays.
Sharks and their relatives have cartilage.
Cartilage fish chondrichtyhes
Cartilage type fish such as sharks and rays.
All fish, by definition, have bony skeletons. A sharks skeleton is completely made of cartilage - there is no calcification in their skeleton. So fish have bony skeletons, sharks have cartilaginous skeletons.
Sharks do not have bones. They have skeletons made of cartilage.
cartilage fish have paird fins and jaws and they have bones. jawless fish have no paired fins and jaws and they have no bone Cartilage fish = sharks and rays Jawless fish = hagfish and lampre
SHARKS AND RAYS HAVE CARTILAGE SKELETONS,WHICH MEANS THEY ARE VERY FLEXIBLE. I THINK.(peytonallentranum)
Boney fish are fish with actual bones whereas sharks have only cartilage (a flexible bone-like material that is also in your nose).
Chondrichtyes, or sharks and rays. Literally 'cartilage fish'.
Yes. All fish are vertebrates and they have backbones. A shark's skeleton is different because it is cartilage instead of bone, but sharks do have spines. No sharks do not have a backbone. Backbones are made up of, well, bone; sharks have no bones they have cartilage instead. Their "backbone" is made up of cartilage.
sharks ones are bigger Main difference is that fish skeletons have bones in them, while sharks just have cartilage skeletons. They both have backbones, but this difference puts sharks into a different category.
Every fish, except for sharks, rays and chimaeras, these have a skeleton of cartilage instead of bone.
Sharks are a type of fish in that they have no bones, only cartilage. They are referred to sometimes as "dogfish" as well.
One difference is that fish are bony. Sharks have a skeleton made of cartilage (like in your nose or kneecap). Sharks have five to seven gill slits, while fish only have one. Fish have swim bladders for bouyancy, sharks do not.
Well, the sharks fins are not sharp. they are made of cartilage which the shark is mostly made of. Cartilage is what is in your nose and your ears. That is why they bend so easily. Not many fish have cartilage inside them. The fish that do are called, you guessed it, cartilaginous fish. There is also bony fish and jaw-less fish.
For the most part, they do not have bones. They have cartilage.
whales have bones because they are mammals, sharks don't have bones because they are fish not mammals they have cartilage.
Most fish have bones. Sharks and rays do not have bones but they do have bone-like structures that are made from cartilage.
the great white shark are most known but most sharks are these types of fish
Sharks are a type of fish that have no bones, only cartilage. Some parts of their skeleton, like their vertebrae, are calcified. Cartilage, a strong fibrous substance, is softer than bone; our nose and ears are made of cartilage. Sharks belong to the group of fishes called Elasmobranchii, which also includes the rays, skates, and ratfish. The Elasmobranchii are all fish that have no bones, only cartilage.
Neither. Sharks are fish. They are in the same family as Rays. They have skeletons made up of cartilage (excluding the jaws and teeth).
Some sharks have bones like us however some sharks have bones that are made out of cartilage.
Whale sharks are vertebrates, but they have cartilage instead of bone. it depends and yes they are because they are a type of fish and fishes are vertebrates
Along with rays, they make up the family Chodrichthyes, fish with skeletons of cartilage. They are among the most primitive of fish.
a shark is a fish in the higher class of fishes known as 'cartilaginous' fish because they have skeletons made of cartilage
All Sharks are boneless. But they do have a type of skeleton, called cartilage. But they are not bones.
Sharks and jawless fish have cartilaginous skeletons, meaning their skeletons are comprised of cartilage.
Sharks and jawless fish have cartilaginous skeletons, meaning their skeletons are made from cartilage.
Sharks differ from other fish as they have no bones, only cartilage. They also do not have a swim bladder like bony fish, just an oily liver to aid in buoyancy. Sharks also lack the ability to swim backward like other fish and they have no gill cover.
Sharks, cartilage skeleton, lack scales, lack swim-bladder, Boney Fish. bony skeleton, scales, swim-bladder, interesting colouration.
Most "regular" fish, such as the angelfish, have a skeleton made of bone (class osteichthyes, I think). Fish such as sharks, skates, and rays have a skeleton made of cartilage (class chondrichthyes). Even bony fish, though, such as your angelfish, have some cartilage for flexibility. I believe that the baby bony fish, like a human fetus, has pure cartilage until the bone forms. DL
it is a class of fish with jaws but a skeletal system of cartilage. Sharks, and rays fall into this class.
Yes, fish have bones. Depending on the type of fish, it is impossible to give all the examples. Sharks however, do not have bones. They have cartilage. (whats is in your nose and ears!)
Fish in the class chondrichthyes have skeletons of cartilage and powerful jaws which fish do not belong to this group?
The only fish that do belong to the group are sharks, rays and chimaeras. All others do not.
no sharks cartilage is hard. They need it to be to survive
Sharks don't go through ossification because they don't have bones. Sharks are made up of thick cartilage, not bones like other fish.
Sharks, rays and chimaeras/ratfish. Basically fish with cartilage instead of bone.
This is cartilage. Instead of having a skeleton of bone, it is cartilage. Sharks are considered cartilaganious fish. Sorry I don't know how to spell that. lol
Sharks belong to the vertebrate group known as Fish. Specifically, they belong to the vertebrate group known as Chondrichthyes - all sharks and rays - which have skeletons of cartilage rather than bone.
Yes, Angelfish are bony. You can tell that because it is solid bone in its skeleton or because fish with cartilage are these main groups: Jawless fish, Sharks, Rays, and Chimeras.
YES! Sharks are fish and whales are mammals: they breathe air with lungs and nurse their young. Also Sharks only have bone in their jaw bone. The support for the rest of their body is cartilage.
Sharks are cartilaginous fish. The term "cartilaginous fish" means that the structure of the animal's body is formed of cartilage, instead of bone. A shark does not have one bone in it's body. It's skeleton is made up of cartilage. Cartilage is a tough material, like the material that shaped your ear.
