The Sand Tiger Shark lives along the coasts of the western Atlantic Ocean from the Gulf of Maine to Argentina. They also range through the eastern Atlantic from Europe to North Africa and inhabit the Mediterranean Sea. They live typically in shallow water, a lot of the time they journey into deeper waters near the continental slope.
The Sand Tiger Shark is not on the Endangered Species list, but it is hunted none the less. This is because of the fear that humans have of them. So, to alleviate that fear, humans go on killing sprees. But despite this, the population of Sand Tiger Sharks is still thriving.
