Here is a slow moving swellshark.

Swellsharks can be found living in the temperate waters of the eastern Pacific, from central California, USA, to southern Mexico, and central Chile. Their average length is a little over 3 feet.

The swellshark dwells on the ocean floor by day. It's favorite way to catch food is to lay still in one spot with its mouth open and just wait for fish to mistakenly swim into it! One of my lazier neighbors.

The swellshark also has a neat defense. When threatened by a predator this shark can gulp enough water into its stomach to make itself expand to almost twice its normal size! Thats alot of water!

Let's swim right over there... I think I see something really interesting!
