Through the years, our growing knowledge of sharks allowed us to classify 370 species in 1984, and today in 2014, about 460 plus species of sharks have been classified.

Interestingly, it is not uncommon to find objects of human origin in this animal's stomach. The various fish groups account for more than half of vertebrate species.
