The strange sharks that are native in this habitat are known as Greenland sharks, or Sleepy sharks. - These rare, unusual species of shark are sometimes called 'Sleepers' because of their sluggish behaviours. They live in the cold, northern waters, & under the ice shelf in winter. They eat carrion, & large numbers may gather to gorge on a whale carcass. One is said to have been found w/a reindeer in its stomach.

shark sighting during the day - I've been surfing Wellfleet area since the 80's. I did see a shark in the middle of the day at cahoon hollow. It was august 1990. I paddled in, told the life guard, he called everyone in and everyone watched it go north.
20 minutes later back to normal.
