, which means stop requesting sharks I do next please and thank you.
The scale is surely off, but here we have the striking black and white juvenile, and the adult whose stripes have faded and turned to a rich brown. Bamboo sharks are so cute, gah ;~; <3
Another name for these guys is the "cat shark," because of their whisker-like barbels. Despite their small size, bamboo sharks are extremely hardy and can survive out of water for up to twelve hours.
