Shark is a common requiem shark that is found in the
Eastern Atlantic Ocean and the Indo-West Pacific Ocean.
It grows to be up to 6 ft (1.8 m) long, and has a long,
slim body. The mouth has long, characteistic labial
folds at the corners that differentiate it from other
requiem sharks. It is gray above and white below. The
milk shark eats small fish (like sardines, herring,
and flatfish) and invertebrates (like squid, octopus,
shrimp, and crabs). This shark is harmless to humans.
It is called the milk shark because in India, it is
believed that eating its meat will improve the milk
production of a mother.
