How much food do sharks need to eat?

    The amount of food that a shark eats depends on the type of shark it is. Generally a shark will consume about 2% of their total body weight, which is a shock to most people because many think these large animals eat more.  However, some shark species will eat huge meals and then not eat again for weeks, months, or even a year in some cases. When they go long periods with no food at all, they are able to live on the oil that is stored in their liver.

    Sharks don’t have to eat as much because they are cold blooded. This means their circulation is slowed down and they burn energy at a slower rate.
