  6. 6. HABITATS It lives in coastal waters, and it can reach depths of 4,200 feet. Specifically it lives in continental shelf waters of temperate seas and oceans, and sometimes lives in tropical zones It has gills that allow it to pull oxygen out of the water It will eat almost anything if forced to It has lamellae (tiny structures in the nostril that can detect a drop of blood in 25 gallons of H20) It also has lorenzini (jelly-filled canals on the snout that can detect electrical impulses)
