Shark Week: Day 7

shark week7

The Greenland shark smells and tastes of urine. In fact, the Greenland shark’s flesh has such a high concentration of uric acid, a component of urine, that it can only be eaten after it’s been boiled in several changes of water. If the meat is not prepared in this way, it can cause nausea, vomiting, a burning sensation in the mouth, and even coma and death.
