Personally, I think you have to be a bit on the crazy side to scuba dive in a shark tank! (For the record, I'd do it!)
Sand sharks grow up to 10 feet in adult length and can reach up to 200-350 pounds. They are the only shark known to surface for gulps of air. They store the air in their stomachs which allows them to float motionless in the water as they hunt for prey.
