Like all sharks, the adults mate to reproduce. The male holds onto the female by biting her around her gills or fins. As a result, the females tend to have more scars than the males.
Once the egg forms, an embryo starts to develop inside the uterus, but with no connection to the maternal organism, thanks instead to its own reserves (ovoviviparous mode). Gestations lasts eight to nine months. At birth, the young measure roughly 1 m. The female stops feeding during the reproductive period.
The sharp teeth of the sand tiger shark are perfect for catching prey on the move, which it then swallows whole. It mainly hunts fish, cuttlefish and some crustaceans. Despite its threatening appearance, the sand tiger shark does not attack humans.
