Now we’ve reached the mackerel sharks, in this case a smaller relative of the Great White: the porbeagle. They can grow up to over 3 metres but averagely reach 2.5 and can be found in both cool and temperate waters. It can dive up to over 1,300 metres deep but equally can be found in shallow waters under 1 metre. It is also an extremely fast swimmer.
Although physically able to attack humans there are no confirmed records of attacks. It is heavily fished for its meat and fins which has resulted in a rapid decline of population. 

And because it looks so adorable here, a second photo of a porbeagle. ^^
