I though I would post some pics of the Grey Nurse Sharks which we have in Australia. They are the same species as the Sand Tigers in the states but they are on the endangered species list as they were hunted until the mid 70's by spear fishermen.

They are a beautiful animal and I never have felt any danger from them. They have been called the labrador of the sea.
