Florence the Vegetarian Shark Munches on Lettuce Over Meat

May 21, 2012

Florence the Shark is the first vegetarian shark in existence. The veggie-loving mammal originally ate meat, but after a surgery three years ago, her mind and body went from craving steaks to salad. Though this finned friend prefers vegetables, she does require meat to obtain proper nutrition, causing the Sea Life Center to hide fish in celery sticks, cucumbers and lettuce.

Florence the Shark isn't the only oddly named mammal that's vegetarian: Alicia Silverstone's son Bear Blu sticks to a plant-based diet as well.
