Communication and Perception
There is very little known about the communication and perception of frilled sharks because they live in deep water and are hard to observe. Based on information from other deep water sharks, they probably use their lateral line and sense of touch to navigate along the contours of the sea bed. Deep water sharks are also sensitive to sounds or long-distance vibrations, and to electrical pulses given off by animal muscles. Also, they have the ability to detect changes in water pressure to tell up from down.
