The lemon shark, Negaprion brevirostris, is a shark that belongs to the family Carcharhinidae that can grow 10 feet (3.0 m) long.It is known as the lemon shark because at certain depths, the light interaction with the local seawater can make this shark have a tanned and yellow pitted appearance, much like the surface of a lemon.The lemon shark is found mainly along the subtropical and tropical parts of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of North and South America, and around Pacific Islands. The longest lemon shark recorded was 13 ft long, but they are usually 8 to 10 ft (3.0 m). They like tropical water, and like to stay at moderate depths. Lemon sharks are often accompanied by remoras.show more
