Nurse Shark

Scientific name: Ginglymostoma cirratum

This shark is common particularly in the Caribbean. It is sluggish during the day but active at night. It feeds on bottom-dwelling lobsters and other crustaceans, as well as snails, clams, octopus, squid, and any fish slow enough to be caught by its great gulping and inhaling style of feeding. It is a harmless shark unless provoked.
