Comments: I was fortunate enough to observe this thrashig action from the pilothouse and entered the water to discover nurse sharks, at times wildly, mating in the extreme shallows. Turks & Caicos..The nurse shark is a shark in the nurse sharks (Ginglymostomatidae) family, the only member of its genus Ginglymostoma. Nurse sharks can reach a length of 4.3m (14ft) and a weight of 330kg (730lb)..The nurse shark is a common inshore bottom-dwelling shark, found in tropical and subtropical waters on the continental and insular shelves. It is frequently found at depths of one meter or less but may occur down to 75m (246ft).
