Weird Fact of the Day: Mantas can regenerate tissue after serious attacks or injuries. This is helped by the assistance of cleaner fish, which can aid in preventing infection. The right image was taken
within a few weeks of a shark attack on the ray, and the left image was taken of the same ray over a year later.

Nielsen et al. (2016) determined the ages of 28 female Greenland
sharks using radiocarbon dating of proteins within the inner lens of the
Greenland Shark’s eye. The 3 year study found that the oldest shark was 392
years old (give or take 120 years), and that these sharks reach maturity at 156
years (give or take 22 years).
However, it is important to take this discovery with a grain
of salt. There are a number of uncertainties that go with these calculations. Clive
Trueman (Assoc. Marine Ecology Prof) points out that the proteins in the centre
of the eye lenses came from the shark’s mother, which could confound
