What is a Goblin Shark?

A Goblin shark is a born-to-kill predator that lives in the deepest parts of the ocean. They are able to seek out pray in the darkness of the ocean deep. Like all living things they need the basic needs to create them; cells, tissue, organs, and organ systems. I will talk about all of them.


In case you didn't know, there are 2 different types of cells prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Since the goblin shark is a animal it has eukaryotic cells. The nucleus is the main part of the eukayotic cell. It controls the cell ( much like the brain ). The cell membrane supplies support, protection, and moves the cell. Then the ribosome synthesizes proteins.


Cells group together and create tissue. There is 4 types of tissue; muscle, nerve, connective, and epithelial tissue. Muscle tissue is muscles, this tissue produces movement. The nerve tissue is the brains to the muscle tissue's brawn, it tells the muscles when to move. Connection tissue provides protection and support, it also binds together the other tissues. Finally there is epithelial tissue, this tissue lines and covers the whole surface.

Now this is the more commonly known features of animals. I will talk about the brain, stomach, lungs, and heart (side note, i did not put a picture of a goblin shark because the do not have lungs). The brain has 86 million neurons. A brain is made of plasticity, and other ingredients that make plastic.
