Virginia Beaches have multiple shark species, including some swimming near the coast; caution advised.
Sandbar sharks, one of the largest coastal sharks, inhabit Virginia Beach's shallow waters and occasionally swim out deep.
The blue shark is a viviparous, slow-swimming fish that feeds on small fish and squid.
The tiger shark is large, occasionally ventures into shallower waters, and has a varied diet, including garbage.
The dusky shark grows up to 14 feet, feeds on fish, and has a long gestation period. It could attack.
Spinner shark is a deep-water shark that occasionally visits Virginia beaches and prefers hotter climates.
