Adopt a Leopard Shark

HABITAT Ocean
DIET Crabs, fish eggs, clam siphons, burrowing worms
THREATS Entanglement in fishing gear
INTERESTING FACTS Leopard sharks are well-adapted to living near the ocean floor, spending most of their time a foot or so above the bottom. Like all sharks, they lack a swim bladder, a saclike organ that fish use to modify their buoyancy. Sharks can detect electromagnetic waves up to three feet away, sensing a meal hiding under the sand or disguising itself as a rock or plant. Show More
