Sand Tiger Shark

Sand sharks, also known as sand tigers or ragged toothed sharks, are lamniform sharks of the family Odontaspididae (or sometimes - but incorrectly - referred to as Carchariidae). They are found on both sides of the Atlantic coast, but most notably in the Western Indian Ocean and in the Gulf of Maine.

It is believe that this shark gulp and store air in its stomach to maintain neutral bouyancy while swimming, interesting right?
