Sharks have electroreceptor organs called Ampullae of Lorenzini.

They can detect the electromagnetic fields generated by the muscle movements of all living things. This sense is used by sharks to find its prey.

Sharks have hundreds to thousands Ampullae of Lorenzini.
Some guess that sharks also use the earth magnetic field for orientation and navigation.
