WhyReef - Lifestyle

The live shark sucker lives on the bounty of its fellow sea creatures, depending on other animals to live. A bad swimmer, it needs to attach to another animals—usually sharks, but also large fish, stingrays, sea turtles, dolphins, whales, and even the legs of people—if it wants to get around. Don’t worry though; its sucking disc isn’t painful.
