Sand tiger shark

A sand tiger shark (Carcharias taurus) in a wreck off North Carolina. Sand tiger embryos feed on eggs and other developing embryos while still inside the mother's uterus, which makes the pups stronger and preps them for a predatory lifestyle. The downside of this is that sand tigers have one of the slowest birth rates of any shark species.
