|This is another species of small
coastal shark. Found from NC southward, it ranges the warmer waters of the east
coast. They tend to have a poor demeanor. They can be an aggressive species
for their size. They are born (on average) as a very large and robust pup
from 21 to 25 inches in length. This is large for a shark with a maximum size
being only around 4 feet in length.
Mini-bulls have short, narrow teeth. They are very aggressive hunters feeding on large fish from birth. They generally do not attack humans despite their somewhat unpleasant disposition. Their disposition may be due to their love and endurance of very hot water (over 86 degrees F). They are very active during the breeding and pupping season.
This species has not been used much for display. This is unfortunate given their beauty and small teeth. Though they can nip or bite rays and tank mates, they are durable and do not get too big for aquariums. They are not pressured by over-fishing.
