Leopard sharks are known to frequent this part of the Santa Monica Bay and while they may look intimidating, they are rather docile creatures.
They range from the state of Oregon to Mazatlaan, Mexico. Large schools of these fine eating sharks are often observed swimming in bays and estuaries in very shallow water. Groups of leopard sharks can be seen hunting and feeding on clams, crabs, shrimp, and other prey in these areas.
This species is aplacental viviparous, meaning that the young hatch inside the uterus and are nourished by yolk. From March to June, the female gives birth to as many as 37 young after a gestation period of 10–12 months. It is relatively slow-growing and takes many years to mature.
While anglers catch leopard sharks all day and night, many anglers find the sharks to feed nocturnally and find great success after the sun has set. This particular leopard shark appeared to be a pregnant female was released unharmed.
