We proudly announce the release of our 1/32 Scale Sand Tiger Shark and Blacktip Reef Shark "Self-suspension" Diorama!
The sand tiger shark (Carcharias taurus), grey nurse shark, spotted ragged-tooth shark or blue-nurse sand tiger, is a species of shark that inhabits subtropical and temperate waters worldwide. It inhabits the continental shelf, from sandy shorelines (hence the name sand tiger shark) and submerged reefs to a depth of around 191 m (627 ft).
The blacktip reef shark (Carcharhinus melanopterus) is a species of requiem shark which can be easily identified by the prominent black tips on its fins (especially on the first dorsal fin and its caudal fin). It typically attains a length of 1.6 m (5.2 ft).
In the Diorama: Two adult sand tiger sharks, both of which carry live sharksuckers (Echeneis naucrates) on their bodies, are swimming slowly and quietly near the sandy bottom of a huge aquarium tank. Compared with the sand tiger sharks, two blacktip reef sharks are swimming a lot faster among the coral and rocks with great agility. One of the blacktip reef sharks is attracted by a blue hippo tang (Paracanthurus hepatus), which is swimming near the reef with others in its group. A pair of emperor angelfish (Pomacanthus imperator) is seeking for food near the blue hippo tangs. A group of yellowtail snapper (Ocyurus chrysurus) is swimming fast by the sand tiger sharks.
