Not all sharks are big & scary.

The lesser spotted catshark or dogfish, Scyliorhinus canicula, is the most common catshark in coastal waters of Europe. It is found in the northeast and eastern central Atlantic, the Mediterranean Sea and off the coast of western Africa. This is a small shallow-water shark. When the baby sharks hatch from their eggs, they are 7-11 cm long. Adults can grow up to 1 m long, but most are only about half that size.
