Sand Tiger Shark

Series of elevation illustrations of the Sand Tiger Shark

The Sand Tiger Shark (Carcharias Taurus), also referred to as the spotted ragged-tooth shark, is a shark species with brown-gray skin with rust color spots on their back and white underside. They are generally found in the shores of subtropical waters like Japan, Australia, South Africa, and the Mediterranean.

Sand Tiger Sharks eat crustaceans, fish, and squid. They are active predators and feed throughout the night by staying close to the bottom. Sand Tiger Sharks are vulnerable to extinction as they have one of the lowest reproduction rates among all sharks.
