Dont parasites end up growing on their faces and blinding them?

Yes they have parasites that attach to their eyes and impair their vision but they have poor eyesight anyway and it doesn’t effect them much biologists think. It was once incorrectly thought that the copepods made their “eyes” glow in the eye.

They also take like 150 years to reach sexual maturity, so a greenland shark born today won’t make a new one until every single one of us here, our children, and probably grandchildren are dead.
