Caption: Shark electroreceptors. Computer illustration of a section through electroreceptors in the skin of a shark, known as ampullae of Lorenzini. Sharks use these jelly-filled pores to detect the electromagnetic fields produced by all living things. This allows them to find prey even when the animal is hidden.
