Living up to about 30 years, leopard sharks can be found in shallow muddy waters, particularly Northern California. Often times they are preyed upon by larger sharks, like the Great White, but they themselves eat relatively small animals like worms, crabs, octopus, and fish. Branching off from a species of houndshark in the Triakidae family, adult leopard sharks can grow up to 6 feet long, but typically average at about 5 feet.
Known as the “killer whale,” orcas are classified as apex predators because no other sea creatures actively hunt them. Some animals they eat include different types of fish, seals, squid, and even large animals like whales and the great white shark!
