Pacific smalltail shark
|Pacific smalltail shark|
It is relatively small with skin of a light-brownish color. They can be found in the Pacific Ocean. Not much is known about this species of shark, and there have been no recorded attacks on humans from this animal. It looks a bit like the copper shark and a sand tiger shark, yet it is much smaller than either. It is most likely not dangerous toward humans. It has a small, slender body and five gills in front of its pectoral fins.
The Pacific smalltail shark feeds on rays and fish and small invertebrates. Some adults even feed on the young of other sharks.
