Sand Tiger Sharks
The stars of the show are our impressively large Sand Tiger Sharks. They have thousands of teeth in a lifetime!
Undulating their ‘wings’ enables these flat animals to move gracefully through the water.
These majestic sharks can often be seen resting on the Reef bed. They are easily identified by their little handlebar moustaches!
Their incredible patterns and ridges across their back makes these sharks easy to spot!
