Sandbar Shark

One of the world’s largest coastal sharks, sandbar sharks are the most common species swimming along the U.S. Atlantic coast. Their genus name Carcharhinus, which is of Greek derivation, translates to ‘sharpened nose of lead’ and although rounded horizontally, their profile is, indeed, sharp. The sandbar part of their common name comes from their preference for sandy bottoms of the ocean. They are also called brown sharks. Identifying characteristics include a relatively heavy body, a short rounded snout, large dorsal and pectoral fins, and a graceful swimming pattern. These sharks have been reported to be involved in some attacks on humans, but they are not generally considered dangerous.
