Do sharks feel pain?

    No, according to available behavioral and neurological data, sharks do not feel pain in the sense that we do.  Biologists have concluded that sharks (and rays for that matter) lack then neurogical functions to percieve pain in the same way that humans do.  This information puzzles scientists, who believe that detecting injury would be a necessary function for a shark’s body in their seemingly dangerous world.  However, at this time, we do not understand if and how sharks do this.
