How to Draw a Green Hammerhead Cartoon Shark

This green hammerhead cartoon shark looks more realistic than a cartoon.

You can also use an eye shape to create the body.

Shark Facts 101

Sharks do not have bones

Another amazing fact about sharks is that they do not have bones. 

Most people do not believe this because of their size and how they attack other animals. 

But they have confirmed that sharks do not have the normal bones that you would expect. 

Teeth are the only bones in the body of sharks.

Sharks have a soft tissue known as cartilage that is lighter than bones. 

Hence, they can swim quickly and float very well.

Also, the flexibility of the cartilage gives them the power to bend more easily than other fish. 

Also, they have spines that fill the function of the bones. Their skeleton is very light to help them float. 

However, even though they do not have bones, they can easily harden.
