Pacific Sleeper Shark (Somniosus pacificus) (5/9)

List item

One of these sharks was recently filmed using bait in the Tokyo Bay (Japan) which measured at 7 meters or 23 feet. At maturity, they typically weigh around 340 kilograms or 750 pounds and are normally around 12 feet in length or about 3.6 meters.
They are known to avoid light and swim at depths under the photic surface during the day and come up to surface at night. That makes them a rare sighting by humans. This shark can be found in abundance in Japan’s north Pacific and occurs right along the Siberian coast into the Bering Sea
