I can't answer your question, but I found some people who specialize in catching wild sharks! They have very strict rules though if you're buying from them, but I thought it was really cool. I love sharks.

I hear they are pretty docile in captivity. Until they out grow their tank, that can be pretty costly. But other than that haven't heard to much on them, I've admired from a far though icon_biggin.gif

Here's some info on keeping them. Getting the short-tail ones is better as they stay small, a couple feet long but still means they need a lot of room.

You'd need a large custom tank for them, very expensive to set up and maintain.
