|Species||Sand tiger shark (Carcharias taurus)|
|Location||Wreck of USCGC Spar: 34.2777, -76.644, Atlantic Ocean|
There were several female sand tiger shark all over the wreck of the Spar, but they seemed to enjoy resting below the bow of the Spar. Some were seen rubbing themselves and rolling on the gravely sand. There was one shark in particular, who has a scar on the left side of her jaw (see images) that we saw at that location on two separate days at the same location near the bow. We saw her on Thursday, May 28, and again on Saturday, May 30.
