A remora is a small fish that usually average between one and three feet in length. Their front dorsal fins have evolved over time into an organ that acts like a suction cup on the top of their heads. This organ is used to attach the fish to a passing shark, usually on the shark's belly or underside. They have also been known to attach to whales, manta rays, and the occasional diver.
The shark and remora relationship benefits both species. Remoras are able to eat scraps of prey dropped by the shark. They also feed off of parasites on the shark's skin and in its mouth.The remora receives more than just a convenient food source; it is also protected from predators and given free transportation through the oceans. By keeping the waters clear of scraps around the shark, the remoras prevent the development of unhealthy organisms near the shark. Sharks have been observed slowing down in the water, even risking their own survival, in order to allow remoras to attach themselves.
