WEEK 1 Pyjama Shark
Pyjama sharks are preeetttyyy small compared to other better-known sharks, their largest estimated size only being around 3 feet. (Great whites average size being 13-15 feet, and hammerheads being around 12-15 feet, In fact, the average full size Pyjama shark will be the size of a Hammerheads pup)
Sadly the Pyjama shark is currently under threat of becoming an endangered species :( However numbers of Pyjama sharks have been rising, and they are under protection from commercial fishing since 2005!
Overall this shark is rather shy and skittish, and our shark of the week!
