Feeding Behavior — Lemon sharks may chase down other sharks as prey, along with large sea birds, squid, crustaceans, stingrays and eagle rays. This is not an aggressive shark species toward humans; however, when threatened, this big yellow fish will not hesitate to inflict a potentially serious, and even deadly, bite.
Cool Fact — Its scientific name means "the shark with the smooth teeth and the short snout."
Common Max Depth — 295 feet, while some may dive to 1,300 feet.
