When sharks mate, the male inserts one of his claspers (a finger-like appendage on the male's underside) into the female's cloaca (genital opening). Most fish have developed acute senses and are very sensitive to smell and taste. They are used to extract oxygen from the water and to excrete carbon dioxide back into the water. When they spot a feeding shark, they travel in a small boat to the site, and when the shark comes close they stick a small hand-held waterproof video recorder under the water and film the shark as it passes by.
