      Good question. I learned something!

      None. They have skeletons made of cartilage, along with rays, skates, etc.

      None if you just count bones in their own body. But if you also count what might be in their stomach it’s a little tricky. About 206 if they have just eaten a full adult human. OmNomNom.
