WHAT IS THE NURSE SHARK?


The nurse shark is the bottom feeder in the shark world. They are also very harmless to people but you shouldn't try to agrevate this beautiful animal as it has very strong jaws and can defend itself very well. The skin on this shark is gray-brown and many of them have white spots on the top portion of their body. Most sharks are rough to touch but the nurse shark feels soft if touched by the human hand.



Nurse sharks are also one of the few shark groups that live well in captivity. Nurse sharks can grow to about 2-13 feet long and the record size for this shark was 14 feet. Nurse sharks eat bottom-dwelling fish, squid, shrimp, octopus, crabs, sea snails, lobster, sea urchins and coral. This animal is a nocturnal hunter which means that it does most of its hunting at night. Nurse sharks congregate in schools and rest slugishly at the bottom of the ocean during the day.

Nurse sharks are found in the western Atlantic Ocean and the eastern Pacific Ocean. Nurse shark eggs develop inside the bodies of their mother after fertilization and hatch in their mother. An average litter is made up of 20-30 pups and they are equal in development as their parents at birth and are fully ready to reproduce. Nurse sharks reach maturity at about 15 to 20 years old. Nurse sharks do not migrate as the water becomes cooler, their activity level simply decreases.
