Sand shark jaw

Description: This is the upper and lower jaw of the Sand Shark. It lives mostly on the bottom of the sea or close to it, and is more active at night than by day. The Sand Shark's chief diet is small fish, but they also eat lobster, crab, and squid. These sharks can grow up to around six feet in length. They can be found in the coastal waters on both sides of the Atlantic; in the West from Maine to Florida, and in the Mediterranean and tropical West African waters in the East.
