Sharks are sandpaper.

In our trip to Mexico we went bottom fishing and I caught a shark. I touched it and the skin was really pretty much like sandpaper. I heard the skin was used for samurai swords because of its sandpaper like characteristic. It is not slimy like other fish. Im not sure what it tasted like because we filleted all our fish and we made them into fish tacos. I ate it after taking 6 glasses of margarita.

Just curious but how did you catch a shark? What kind was it?

The one I caught was about three foot long or so, I'm not sure what kind it was but it surely is a shark. I used a fishing rod and a bait. The line has weights at the tip so it will drop at the bottom of the sea. The line has 4 hooks with sardines. They call this style, bottom fishing. It was my first time fishing so I don't know so much.

Placoid scsles. That is what produces the sandpaper feel. You are an adventurous lot, Gorilla. Having the time of your life, huh! Don't go dipping again after 6 glasses of margarita though. Not advisable to drink and dive!
