Although in daylight they have perfectly good eyesight, these night raids must be their undoing. Items found in sharks’ stomachs include beer bottles, bags of potatoes, a tom-tom drum, car number-plates, house bricks, a suit of armour and a whole porcupine. A single tiger shark was found to have swallowed three overcoats and a raincoat, some trousers, a pair of shoes, a driving licence, a set of antlers, twelve intact lobsters and a whole hen-house full of partly digested chickens. The female frilled shark holds the world record for the longest pregnancy in nature: over three years.
Species have been found in the Himalayas and the Andes at altitudes of over 14,000 feet, while others bask in the warm coral reefs of the South Pacific. They range in size from some of the smallest known fishes to the largest. Scoloplax dicra is fully grown at half an inch while the European wels (Silurus glanis) grows to 16 feet and can weigh 650 lb. Catfish account for about 8 per cent of all fish and are among the most remarkable creatures on earth. There is a talking catfish, a walking catfish, an electric catfish, an upside-down catfish and a catfish that looks like a banjo, but what really makes them stand out is their senses – the most finely tuned in nature.

The echinoderms (‘spiny skins’), which also include sea urchins and sea cucumbers, first appeared in the early Cambrian period, about 550 million years ago, and haven’t changed much since. Unlike molluscs and insects, they have an internal skeleton made from plates of calcium carbonate called ossicles. This makes them the direct relative of all vertebrates, including humans. They don’t have a central brain, but being star-shaped, they don’t have a ‘front’ or ‘back’ either.
