Nurse Shark _Designed by rogerpeng1 ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:137954/#files ) _Nurse shark, (Ginglymostoma cirratum), Atlantic shark of the family Ginglymostomatidae. The nurse shark is yellow-brown or gray-brown, sometimes with dark spots, and may grow to over 4 m (13 feet) in length. It rarely attacks swimmers but may when provoked. It is not related to the gray nurse (see sand shark) of Australia. The name nurse shark is used to describe any member of the family Ginglymostomatidae. In addition to G. cirratum, the family includes the tawny nurse shark (Nebrius ferrugineus) and the shorttail nurse shark (Pseudoginglymostoma brevicaudatum). _The origin of the name "nurse shark" is unclear. It may come from the sucking sound they make when hunting for prey in the sand, which vaguely resembles that of a nursing baby. Or it may derive from an archaic word, nusse, meaning cat shark. The most likely theory though is that the name comes from the Old English word for sea-floor shark: hurse. _Nurse sharks are slow-moving bottom-dwellers and are, for the most part, harmless to humans. However, they can be huge—up to 14 feet (4.3 meters)—and have very strong jaws filled with thousands of tiny, serrated teeth, and will bite defensively if stepped on or bothered by divers who assume they’re docile. _They use their strong jaws to crush and eat shellfish and even coral, but prefer to dine on fish, shrimp, and squid. They are gray-brown and have distinctive tail fins that can be up to one-fourth their total length. Unlike most other sharks, nurses are smooth to the touch.Nurse sharks are found in the warm, shallow waters of the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific oceans. They are abundant throughout their range and have no special conservation status, although the closeness of their habit to human activities is putting pressure on the species.
