Also known as Zebra shark. Diet: Mainly mollusks but also small bony fishes, crustaceans and sea snakes.
Max. Size: 354 cm
Fun Fact: To breathe, many sharks must swim to force oxygenated water over their gills. But, like all bottom-dwelling sharks, zebra sharks have the ability to pump water over their gills, either through their mouth or through the large spiracle behind each eye. To ease the task of pumping all that water over their gills, the sharks face into the ocean current.
