Fun facts about our Leopard Shark:
They have become protected in California and Oregon coasts so that they are not over fished.
These types of sharks are most commonly found in sandy or muddy bays and estuaries near the bottom.
It is rare to find them in size over 6 feet long.
Leopard sharks have a very distinctive pattern when born and look similar to the mammals.
Leopard sharks are ovoviviparous, which means that the eggs hatch within the mother.
They are also known to produce up to 33 pups in a litter.
The Leopard Shark can be found at the Portland Aquarium along with Pyjama Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks and Bamboo Sharks.
