Animal Stories - Cat Shark

Animal-World Information about: Cat Shark

   The Cat Shark is in the same genus, Chiloscyllium, as the Brownbanded Bamboo Shark, but it gets much larger. While the Brownbanded Bamboo Shark will grow to only 40 inches (104 cm), the Cat Shark will reach a whooping 87 inches (220 cm)! One good sized fish! Obviously too large for many marine aquariums!

Mine is doing very well. I started him feeding from a stick with squid, he now competes very well for food with other tank mates. Be sure to have a fine substrate, no crushed coral. They develop septecemia from scatches on their belly secondary to the wrong substrate
