International Angel Shark Day

Angel sharks are a unique species of shark that stand out – or should we say blend in – thanks to their flat features, sandy brown coloration and scattered spots. This shark lives on the sandy seafloor, almost disappearing when buried in the sand. An ambush predator, angel sharks lie in wait for unsuspecting small fish to swim just a little too close, and, when the time is right they’ll strike! They’ll lunge forward, open their mouths wide and extend their powerful jaws to suction up their prey in a blink of an eye.
