This image of a Lemon shark was taken at a depth of approximately 90 feet near Jupiter, Florida. Named for the tint that sometimes appears yellow, serving as camouflage when the shark swims along the sandy sea floor of its habitat. Lemon sharks have repeatedly demonstrated group living, inhabiting and returning to the same nursery sites for breeding, often for several years. Other benefits of group living for the sharks include enhanced communication, courtship, and protection from other predators. Like most other sharks, the Lemon shark has very sharp teeth, but they are curved instead of straight, allowing them a firmer hold on their prey. This mage shows a unique view of the Lemon shark and their curved teeth.
