TP0631-Dr. Sand Tiger Shark (Carcharias taurus), note fishing lure on the hook piercing its cheek. These sharks are now protected in many places after numbers crashed due to overfishing. In US waters, fishing for them is currently prohibited, buy some are still hooked by fishermen jigging for grouper and other fish on the wrecks off North Carolina, and some sharks die. This one will probably survive. North Carolina, USA, Atlantic Ocean.<br />
