I saw you post the video of the 3D casting of the shark jaws, and saw how many rows upon rows of teeth they have. Do the teeth just fall out and come in as a new row? Or do they fall out individually and get pushed up one at a time?
What are the 'Shorty Awards' and why do you want to win one?
Now, as to why I want to "win" one: I don't. I don't care for awards. But it would be really cool to have Sarasota Fins reach a national platform through the Shorty Awards. So, I'm actually doing this for #sharkconservation,#sharkeducation and #sharkawareness. The Shorty Awards aren't world famous, but they are talked about on social media. To have Sarasota Fins up there would be fantastic.

What's it like to be a marine biologist?
BUT, it’s a lot of fun if you find this sort of thing rewarding. You won’t get rich off of it, money-wise, but you’ll make great friendships, learn fascinating things about our planet and get to see astounding sights.
I was doing some research about Great White Sharks, and saw some speculation about the males turning into females when they get to a certain point in size and age... would you know if this is a fact? I don't have any verifying/trustworthy source for this info, so I thought I would ask :)
I want to earn my Bachelor's degree in Biology. Can I go to another school after this for my Master's in Marine science, or will I have to start all over?
I want to become a Marine Biologist and would like to know how you got started on becoming one. I know major in Bio is the start but after that I'm lost lol.
Biggest advice to any student interested in Marine Bio?
What do you hope comes out of your book club (saw it on your 2015 list)? When does it start?
It starts this upcoming week!
Thanks for your questions, everyone!
Keep asking away and tune in to the next Sharky Sunday!
