A smalltooth sand tiger shark

September 13, 2005
Smalltooth sand tiger shark (Odontaspis ferox). This is the first time HURL has video-taped one of these uncommon sharks. His teeth are more jagged than most other types of sharks, which makes him look ferocious even though he is not implicated in attacks on people.
