25 Facts About Sharks

#6 – The Laziest Shark

Not all sharks are active and in search of prey in every given moment. There are couch potato sharks out there that don’t like to do anything but sleeping and resting on the ocean’s floor. Although there are many sharks that fit that description, the world’s laziest shark is the nurse shark.

Nurse sharks don’t do anything but sleeping on and resting on the ocean’s floor. They don’t even hunt for food. When they get hungry, nurse sharks suck prey off the ocean’s floor with their mouth. If only all sharks were like nurse sharks, the world would be a better place.
