Salmon Shark

Scaled collection of drawings of Salmon Shark in various poses

The Salmon Shark (Lamna Ditropis) is a species of shark that is sometimes mistaken for the Great White Shark, as they are very similar in appearance. They have a grey-black skin coloring with dark blotches and a white underside. Salmon Sharks live in the northern Pacific Ocean by Japan, but can be found in other regions.

They hunt whenever there is an opportunity and eat salmon, squid, sablefish, and herring. Salmon sharks are capable of hurting humans, but few shark attacks have been documented. They are fast swimmers and can swim up to a speed of 50 mph.
