Chondrichthyes (/ k ɒ n ˈ d r ɪ k θ i iː z /; from Greek χονδρ- chondr-'cartilage', ἰχθύς ichthys 'fish') is a class that contains the cartilaginous fishes: they are jawed vertebrates with paired fins, paired nares, scales, a heart with its chambers in series, and skeletons made of cartilage rather than class is divided into two subclasses: Elasmobranchii (sharks, rays.   Sharks, rays and skates can hunt for prey hidden in the sandy sea floor by “listening” for faint traces of bioelectricity – they can literally sense their prey’s heart beating. The basic anatomy of the electro-sensory organs that accomplish this feat has been known for decades, but the biological mechanisms – how electrosensory cells. There are now more t shark pictures and sections on shark evolution, biology, and conservation. There is a large library of reviewed shark books, a constantly updated shark taxonomy page, a monster list of shark links, and deeper in the site there are numerous articles and stories about shark encounters.   Sharks, rays and skates can hunt for prey hidden in the sandy sea floor by "listening" for faint traces of bioelectricity—they can literally sense their prey's heart beating.

-sharks can dilate and constrict their pupils, unlike teleosts-skates only have rods, so they can only see greyscale-some rays (myliobatoid, e.g.

cownose and spotted eagle ray) have multiple cones, so they can see color-many sharks have one type of cone, but it is debated whether they can see color or not.
