"perfectly adapted for its environment"

"The continental slope, which extends for thousands of miles, gradually descends to the abyssal plain at 3,000 metres. Just occasionally the carcass of a dead whale drops right down to these great depths. With their acute sense of smell, thousands of hagfish are attracted to the carcass and out of nowhere a massive sleeper shark appears. As big as great whites, these are very slow moving sharks, perfectly adapted for a life in these energy deficient waters."
