Currently at Mote we care for four different species of sharks which includes bonnetheads, sandbars, nurses, and blacknoses. Each of these species can be found in the wild in the Gulf of Mexico. Most sharks have between seven and fourteen rows of teeth, allowing teeth to be replaced as they wear down. Sharks are a vital part of the ocean ecosystem and we still have so much to learn from them.
