The Zebra shark (Stegostoma tigrinum) is considered a Lazy shark due to it is laying on sandy patches and resting all day long. It is considered a nocturnal shark which hunts its prey, small fish, snails, sea urchins, crabs, lobsters and other small invertebrates at night.
It is rare to see one swimming during the day! Here we have been lucky!
Young zebra sharks under 50–90 cm (20–35 in) long have a completely different pattern, consisting of light vertical stripes on a brown background, and lack the ridges hence the name Zebra Shark.
