    i am a slow but strong swimmer I am usually more active at night. Although my body is more dense than the water, I can swallow air at the surface and hold it in my stomach to maintain neutral buoyancy.you can find me dwelling many places around the world,But you can also catch me rite here in the DB

    Weakies, red drum, black drum, croakers-all have air bladders and can be caught in the DB. Gotta go w/ black drum- they are the most surface oriented of all and do their drumming at night.

    How about a Sand Tiger Shark. Don't know if they surface. You see them in aquariums the big ones. If not how about a manta ray.

    After reading again a Manta isnt a slow swimmer, I retract that one. How about a Blue Claw Crab. You didn't say fish.

    We Have A Winner Good Job Ray.Yes its a Sandtiger shark. Sand tiger sharks occur either alone or in small to medium sized schools. They have been observed hovering motionless just above the seabed in or near deep sandy -bottomed gutters or rocky caves, usually in the vicinity of inshore rocky reefs and islands, They are generally coastal, usually being found from the surf zone down to depths around 75 feet. However, they may also be found in shallow bays, around coral reefs and to depths of 600 feet on the continental shelf. They usually live near the bottom, but may also be found throughout the water column.

    This shark is a slow but strong swimmer that is usually more active at night. Although its body is more dense than the water, it has been found to swallow air at the surface and hold it in its stomach to maintain neutral buoyancy.

    They are also illegal to keep, just like white sharks.

    Sand Tigers grow up to 10 feet long and seem to just float like they're not even moving but they strike like lightning

    Though they look mean they're mostly harmless unless provoked.

    They're diet is mainly fish

    An intresting fact is they in older age get a spinal problem that makes them develop a big hump on they're back the cause of that is unknown.

    While floating along they will open and close they're mouths

    This shark is also known as a ragged toothed shark or a grey nurse shark and you might know them as sand sharks.
