SANDTIGER SHARK

Native to warm waters the Sandtiger can reach lengths of 13 feet. Check out those teeth!

Green Sea Turtle

GREEN SEA TURTLE

Green sea turtles are open-ocean travelers but dine in shallow water on sea grass, algae, and jellyfish.

Destruction of their food source and nesting habitat, and the harvesting of their eggs has placed this species on the Endangered Species List.

Green Moray Eel

 

GREEN MORAY EEL

Growing up to 8 feet long, the green moray eel of the Atlantic Ocean continuously open and close their mouths to pump oxygen and water over their gills.

This exposes their many teeth and gives them a very fierce appearance.

NURSE SHARK

Nurse sharks get their name from the sucking noise they make when feeding.
 
The noise sounds remarkably like a baby sucking on a bottle.

 

TARPON

Considered one of the most primitive of the bony fishes, tarpons are super predators that are hungry most of the time.
 
They can grow over 10 feet in length and weigh upward of 400 pounds!
