We’re starting November with the finetooth shark (Carcharhinus isodon), a relatively small shark (it only gets up to 1.9 m or 6.2 ft)! Name doesn’t ring a bell? No worries, you might know them as something else!
They are also known as the “Eventooth shark,” “Smooth-tooth shark,” and “night shark.” This slender shark can be easily identified by its needle-like teeth that gives it the common name “finetooth.” A dark blue-gray colour on top, it has a creamy underbelly and long gill slits.
