We started off this Monday with a gorgeous juvenile tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier). Tiger sharks are famous for their namesake stripes, but did you know that they are born spotty? Yep, adorably spotty little tiger shark pups! Their spots change to stripes as they get older and the stripes eventually fade. On really big tigers, the stripes can be very hard to see.
Our second meme was an oldie but goldie from the internet, featuring a basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus). The basking shark is the second largest living fish species, only outsized by the whale shark (Rhincodon typus). While their size is truly impressive, like the whale shark, they feed on teeny tiny plankton.
