TRUTH !!
As in humans, indigestible items can be voided out the mouth. But, unlike ourselves, at least some sharks can evert the stomach at will: turning it inside-out through the mouth, rinsing the stomach lining in sea water, then retracting and returning it to the normal inside-in condition. Although no one has yet reported this behavior in the Great White, sharks can apparently do this all about as easily as you or I might return an inside-out sock to its correct topology. [COLOR= ]
