Zebra shark (Juvenile)
IUCN status: Endangered
They are found in the Indo-Pacific region from South Africa to the Red Sea, Madagascar, India to Japan and also in Northern Australia. They are slow-moving, bottom-dwelling sharks found at depth of 203 ft. They are also seen along the coral reefs and can be easily approached by humans as they are completely harmless.
They are nocturnal and spend most of the day resting motionless on the sea floor. At night, they actively hunt for molluscs, crustaceans, small bony fishes and possibly sea snakes inside holes and crevices in the reefs.
Their number is decreasing due to the destruction of coral reefs and overfishing as it also uses for human consumption.
