Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Found in both coastal and oceanic waters, including estuaries. Nocturnal feeder on mammals, tortoises, birds, sea snakes, squids, gastropods, crustaceans, and detritus. Ovoviviparous. One of the most common of the large sharks in the tropics, second only to @Carcharodon carcharias@ in recorded attacks on humans. At least 27 documented attacks are sourced to it. The 910 cm record unconfirmed. One specimen, reportedly taken off Indo-China, weighed 3,110 kg and measured 740 cm (Ref. 9987). May be caught using longlines (Ref. 5213). Valued for its meat and fins as well as its excellent hide; utilized fresh, dried-salted, smoked and frozen (Ref. 9987). [details]
