Bottom-feeding Nurse Sharks have a very limited range, swimming the warm coastal waters off West Africa and South and Central America. The 9-foot sharks are abundant within their range, however, and they happily feed on squid, shrimp, and fish. Scientific Name: Ginglymostoma cirratum. Characteristics: This sleek Nurse Shark figure details several characteristics unique to the species, including the dual dorsal fins with their clipped shape, the sucker-shaped mouth, and the catfish-like barbels. Size and Color: A sandy-brown color gives this 5½" long shark figure a realistic color, allowing it to blend with the sea bottom. It's about the length of a soda can. The Nurse Shark is part of the Wild Safari Sea Life collection. All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
