Basking Shark Bone
Every trip to the ocean shows a different face to nature. This weekend I found this rather bone like item that had washed up along the shore in low tide. I sent it into MARS - Marine Animal Response Society of Nova Scotia, and it appears it may be a Basking Shark bone. It is quite interesting indeed at 20" long along the outer curve. I am always amazed at how and what the ocean brings to land upon the shoreline. While this is interesting, it is also a bit sad to see as it once was part of a living mammal.

I know a musician who refers to himself as a basking shark. I don't even know what exactly is a basking shark. I just remember the words because of him. I also don't remember much of his music. It's upbeat and a little dark but not darker than his way of singing. His face twists like an angry bear when he sings. He headbangs like he was singing dark metal but it's a little out of timing since his songs are mostly just simple rock ballads. It was hilarious but you can't really laugh because he seems serious.

Hi, Thank you for reading and commenting. I'll have to look up that musician and basking sharks are one of the second largest sharks that eat plankton and swim around with their mouths open - google for images. Looks like they are smiling, lol
