Sand Tiger Shark

Sand tiger sharks are also known as spotted raggedtooth, ground, or gray nurse sharks. It is rumored that aquariums are the source of the “tiger” in the sand tiger name. Originally called sand sharks, the tiger was added to make them seem more ferocious. All sharks in this family swim slowly with their mouths open, exposing long, narrow, needle-like teeth. A fearsome sight, indeed!
