|This species of deep water shark
for decades has been caught by longline operations in the waters of North and South
Carolina and Florida.
They have a wide snout and wide mouth giving them a massive set of jaws for their size. Which allows them ease in feeding on large schooling fish and octopi, even flat fish from the bottom.
Their maximum size is believed to be 12 feet. While healthy 10 and eleven footers are sufficiently large to do well in the continental waters. They roam the waters off the east coast to the Gulf of Mexico.
This species does not do well in transport
and does not appear to be suitable for display. Also, it is not safe
to observe this species underwater without a cage. Remember when down in the
water this isn't like some fantasy
games. This is real life and a real predator you are dealing with,
treat it with the respect it deserves.
Teeth are almost identical to those of Bulls. However, the definitive difference is that the teeth tend to be much smaller while jaws are immense. The jaw set tends to be wide in shape regardless of mount, very impressive.
