Photographer's Note

turkuazoo akvaryum, is a big aquarium in Istanbul around, lots of fish live there.
Sand sharks, also known as sand tiger sharks or ragged tooth sharks, are lamniform sharks of the family Odontaspididae (or sometimes - but incorrectly - referred to as Carchariidae). They are found worldwide in temperate and tropical waters, including on both sides of the Atlantic coast, but most notably in the Western Indian Ocean and in the Gulf of Maine.[citation needed] There are four species in two genera. Sand sharks are the only shark known to surface for gulps of air. They store the air in their stomachs which allows them to float motionless in the water as they hunt for prey.
it seems they are not a danger for human,because you are allowed to swim with them. Sand Shark swims very slowly, but when it comes to hunting ,they can attack very fast..
