Ferocious Looking but Totally Docile

Sand tiger sharks may be the most ferocious looking of all the sharks due to their rows of jagged, sharp teeth that protrude in all directions, even when their mouths are shut. However, not to be confused with their cousin the tiger shark, they are actually non-aggressive and extremely docile. Due to their calm demeanor, scuba diving with sand tiger sharks is a common and enjoyable experience. Nevertheless, as with any species, you should be careful when diving with sand tiger sharks and treat them with respect.
