The lemon shark gets its name because of its pale yellow brown coloring. This species inhabits coastal inshore waters from New Jersey (US) to Southern Brazil, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean and along Senegal and the Ivory Coast of Africa in the eastern Atlantic. There is some evidence that two separate populations exist within the western Atlantic Ocean; one in the Caribbean and one in the Gulf of Mexico. In the North Pacific the lemon shark ranges from the Gulf of California and Baja California south to Ecuador. The lemon shark is commonly found in subtropical shallow water to depths of 300 feet and inhabits coral reefs, mangroves, enclosed bays, sounds and river mouths. However, this species will not penetrate deep into freshwater systems. Lemon sharks can be found in oceanic water during migration but tend to stay along the continental and insular shelves. The lemon shark is also known to form loose aggregations based on size and sex and have been seen congregating near docks and fishing piers during the night, returning to deep water during the day.
The lemon shark is a large stocky, blunt nosed shark with two dorsal fins of similar size. The first dorsal fin is low and positioned posterior to the pectoral fins, the second dorsal is of similar shape and size and positioned anterior to the origin of the anal fin. The pelvic fin has weakly concave rear margins and the pectoral fin outer margin is slightly convex and both fins are weakly falcate. The snout is round and shorter than the width of the mouth. There is no mid-dorsal ridge present on this species. The lemon shark has a yellow/brown or olive gray coloration on the dorsal surface and a lighter yellowish color on the undersides. There are no conspicuous markings. The upper teeth are narrow and broad with triangular smooth-edged cusps and finely serrated bases. These teeth get more oblique as they get closer to the corner of the mouth. The lower teeth are narrow and triangular with smooth-edged cusps. Lemon sharks are one of the larger species of sharks, commonly obtaining lengths between 95-120 inches. and have a growth rate of .21 inches/year. The maximum length that can be reached by this species is between 125-135 inches. Females and males reach sexual maturity around 6-7 years of age and at 95 inches and 88 inches respectively. Pups are between 24-26 inches at birth.
