Leopard Shark

 

The Leopard Shark is small and pretty much harmless to humans. It can be spooked easily so many divers and snorkelers have a tough time catching a glimpse before they swim off. Known for its distinctive dark spots and saddle type markings, the Leopard Shark (Triakis semifasciata) is known to live up to 30 years, taking more than a decade to reach maturity.
