GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Milk shark/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Nice work again. I did some light copyedits, check to make sure I didn't alter the meaning; a few minor quibbles follow. Sasata (talk) 17:13, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

  • "hyomandibular pores" could use linking or explaining
  • Removed "hyomandibular"; all that refers to is where the pores are, which is already explained in the sentence.
  • "Smaller sharks eat proportionately more cephalopods and crustaceans, transitioning to fish as they grow older." Suggest recasting sentence, might be incorrectly interpreted as sharks turn into fish as they get older
  • Changed to "switching to fish"
  • "There is some evidence that male and female milk sharks segregate from each other." Not 100% clear what this means, they like to hang out separately? (Actually I am clear, but think maybe it could be reworded slightly differently) meh, it sounds okay after brain is awoken by coffee
  • "Females do not store sperm internally." Do other female sharks typically do this?
  • Some do (off the top of my head, blue sharks, dusky sharks, and Australian swellsharks can), though I don't know about its overall prevalence across species.
  • "This species is also one of the most important sharks caught off Senegal, Mauritania, Oman, and India." commercially important?
  • Word added.

Let me know of any other issues. -- Yzx (talk) 00:09, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Just one thing, basal goes go a dab page. Other than that, sources check out, and links validity check is ok. I'll let you deal with the dab, and promote the article in the meantime. Sasata (talk) 03:18, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Fixed and thanks! -- Yzx (talk) 03:43, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
