Cold winter morn

Cold winter mornings.
Quote by~Thich Nhat Hanh
Every day we wake up,We have 24 brand
new hours to live.What a precious gift.

The shark cornea
has been used in eye surgery, since its cornea is similar to a human cornea. The eyes placed on both sides of the shark's head, mean that it is looking at two different "scenes" at the same time. Those eyes are one of their most important contributions to humans, since the corneal tissue is almost identical to ours and has been used successfully in eye surgery.
