Pelagic thrasher
Physical description
The Pelagic thrasher or Alopias pelagicus is quite easy to tell the difference from any other shark. The color of the Pelagic thrasher is a light blue gray and dulls to a more gray the less fresh it becomes. It's tail is long and curves up in a strange angle. And has strange saucer sized eyes. it can grow up to 10 ft and can weigh around 150 lbs. It's sharp teeth help it to stun pray and tear food into small bite sized (shark bite sized) pieces, because like every other shark it can't chew it just engulfs it in its mouth. The Pelagic thrasher has a very small mouth too.

The Pelagic thrasher or Alopias pelagicus is located in warm water and temperate offshore waters in the Pacific and Indian ocean, which also include the Mediterranean sea. This species of shark is very plentiful in the Northeastern coast of Taiwan. and in North America it is found in California and Mexico.
