1. A Pacific sleeper shark, Somniosus pacificus (Squaliformes - Somniosidae) of about 9ft and 200 lbs, stranded in Haines, Alaska (March, 2011).

    Pacific sleeper sharks can be found in temperate waters between 70°N-47°S in the North Pacific from Japan, along the Siberian coast to the Bering Sea and in southern California USA, Baja California, and Mexico. At higher latitudes, this shark can be found in littoral (close to the shore) and even intertidal areas [1]. Most records, however, are from water deeper than 780 feet (240 meters) [2].
