Seal Shark Description
  The seal shark has two, spineless dorsal fins that are almost equal in size (the first is slightly smaller). The snout is short and blunt, the lips are thick, and the lower lobe of the caudal fin is not greatly expanded. The first dorsal fin origin is well behind the pectoral fin rear tips and its base is relatively narrow. The coloration is grayish, brown or brownish-black. This shark has a very large liver and is thought to be neutrally buoyant.
