Ever since I saw a Leopard Shark at the Monterey Bay Aquarium I've wanted to draw one. I've studied them at the California Academy of Sciences too, in their large and impressive kelp forest tank. While not colorful, the leopard spot like pattern is beautiful. The drawing was based on a photo by Nordin Rahhali. UPDATE: during a dive to the Channel Islands (off the coast of California near the town of Santa Barbara)
The Leopard Shark is a hound shark found in the coastal waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean, along the coast of North America. They can grow up to 7 feet long with a long, slender body and head. The distinctive markings that give the species its common name provides camouflage. They are bottom feeders eating crustaceans, octopuses, and small fish.
