Lemon Shark

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Negaprion brevirostis, commonly known as the lemon shark, inhabits the tropical shallow waters of the Atlantic, from North Carolina to Brazil. It is 11 ft long. The female gives birth to its young every year, usually in shallow lagoons. Lemon sharks usually swim in school and have remoras hugging close to their bodies as they plow along in shallow waters near the bottom of the sea. Along with the white, tiger, and bull sharks, the lemon shark is dangerous.
