sand tiger shark photos

TP0473-D. Sand Tiger Shark (Carcharias taurus) at 90 feet deep, swimming slowly between the decks of the shipwreck of the Aeolus. Most of the sharks seen on North Carolina wrecks are female. This species exhibits the ovoviviparous reproductive mode, and is embryophagous. After having developed inside eggs in the uterus and cannibalizing their siblings for nourishment, the two strongest pups are born live at about 3 feet long after an 8 to 10 month gestation period. North Carolina, USA, Atlantic Ocean.<br />
