Pictures of Leopard Shark
Leopard Shark
The Leopard Shark is an extremely shy animal and a complete non threat to humans. They seem to have a reputation at the beach likely because of the more aggressive and unrelated Tiger Shark.

A chance to see these sharks from a kayak or while snorkeling should not be missed.
