In: Biology Share Facebook 2 Answers Voted SeanUhTron Added an answer on August 13, 2019 at 4:01 pm Sharks don’t do this out of habit. The only time you may see this is if they’re in really shallow water or they’re investigating something at the surface of the water. In fact, sharks prefer to swim as deep as they can. Dolphin’s on the other hand do often times swim very high up to the point where their dorsal fins break the surface of the water. Their fins are crescent shaped, so they’re easy to tell apart from a sharks fin. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp dkf295 Added an answer on August 13, 2019 at 2:54 pm They very rarely do – They usually stick closer to the bottom or middle of whatever body of water they’re swimming in. You’re used to seeing them that way because… 1. You wouldn’t see them at all unless someone’s diving, unless they were at the surface 2. It makes for a dramatic scene in fictional works 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
