The Zebra Shark

The Zebra Shark is a average -sized species of shark, that is originated in the hot coastal waters and in the region of tropical coral reefs. Zebra sharks are most normally seen in the Indian and South Pacific oceans. Zebra sharks can grow to almost 3 meters in length and can get to be 30 years aged in the wild. Zebra sharks that are reserved in detention usually do not more than 15 years of age. Zebra sharks can be recognized by the yellow marks that are present on the back of the zebra shark.


Zebra sharks have a long, crushed body which assists them to stay unseen on the seabed. The zebra shark also has a long tail which permits it to be more nimble in the water. Zebra sharks move their tails from side to side when they swim, in an eel-like approach. Zebra sharks are omnivorous animals but lean to have an extra meat-based diet. Zebra sharks nourish on little fish, snails, crabs, shrimp and other tiny invertebrates along with squid and sea snakes which they hunt for in the coral reefs.
