Smooth, Quick Predators

The silky shark gets its name from the smooth texture of its skin and is a moderately large, slender shark within the popular requiem family of shark species. They can reach up to 8 feet in length and over 700 pounds with females growing larger than males. They are the most common shark to cruise the pelagic zone (the open ocean) and are distributed throughout the world’s warm, tropical waters. They are a truly elegant looking animal and a beautiful site to see.
