Leopard Sharks

Leopard Sharks

The beautiful leopard shark, recognizable for its distinct dark spots and saddle type markings, is considered harmless to humans. They prefer cool to warm waters in sand flats, mud flats, and rocky bottom areas near reef sites and kelp beds. When hunting they will visit shallow waters for invertebrates such as crabs, shrimps, clams, and octopus, but they have also been known to chase anchovies by swimming in circles at the surface with their mouth open.
