Caption: Sand tiger shark. Head of a sand tiger shark (Odontaspis taurus) showing its teeth. Sand tiger sharks live in warm waters in all the world's oceans, and may reach lengths of around three metres. They are not particular about what they eat, and seem to take anything they come across, including other sharks. They are slow swimmers compared to other sharks, and spend most of their time near the sea bed, but not at depths of more than 200 metres. Sand tigers are known to congregate in large groups at times, usually for mating purposes.
