Sand Tiger Shark – Sand tiger sharks, also known as gray nurse sharks, have a deceivingly ferocious look. They are large-bodied and display a mouthful of sharp teeth that protrude in all directions, even when the mouth is shut. Despite this, they are a docile, non-aggressive species, known to attack humans only when bothered first (Source: National Geographic)
Crow Shark – Squalicorax is an extinct genus of shark that lived during the Cretaceous period, approximately 113 to 66 million years ago. Though this genus is common in Cretaceous deposits throughout the world, paleontologists are rarely able to find any material beyond isolated teeth (Source: Encyclopedia of Life)
Otodus Shark – Although not even close to the size of the biggest shark C. megalodon, Otodus was still bigger than any other carnivorous fish in the sea today, being one and half times bigger than the largest recorded great white shark. (Source: Prehistoric Wildlife)
