Thresher Shark Ear Cuffs

$75.00$195.00

 

Minimalist, sophisticated and unique! Ear cuffs inspired by the long swoop of a thresher shark tail. Subtle with a little edge. The larger is designed for the right ear, the medium for the left, but you can wear either on any ear you like. (note: size refers to the thresher design, not the sizing of the cuff itself)

 

Thresher Sharks

Another of our favorite sharks! Thresher sharks are a lamniform shark, pelagic (live in the open ocean), and are best known for their beautiful, unbelievably long and deadly tails. With a short/cone shaped (almost adorable) head, they have graceful scythe-like tails that can be the same length as the rest of their body. With slender bodies and relatively small dorsal fins, they use their pectoral (side) fins to brake when they deploy their tail overhead like a trebuchet! While this was just a theory for many years, a team in the Philippines recently managed to film it. Sadly all three kinds of threshers (possibly four) are listed as vulnerable to extinction.
