1.Use what you learned in our case study to answer this question. Sharks are osmoconformers that maintain osmolarity with the saltwater but keep ion concentrations similar to osmoregulators. To do this they must use non-ions to osmoregulate, such as urea. As such sharks take on excess ions from the water because their bodies are at a significantly lower ion level than saltwater. How are the excess ions eliminated?

a.Rectal gland

b.none of the answers
