No ferocious felines here! In fact, the leopard shark is a beautiful example of how most sharks are harmless to humans. It lives in shallow coastal waters and occasionally patrols the kelp forest, usually staying near the bottom where it can catch small crabs and slurp up worms from the sand.
This sleek shark is common in California waters as well as at the Aquarium. Look for its loveliness in the Kelp Forest exhibit, where you'll be mesmerized when dappled sunlight makes its leopard-spotted silvery-bronze skin shimmer and green-gold eyes glow.
