|| Isurus Arborae Americanus
- North American Tree Shark
The North American Tree shark was discovered by Kevin A.
Cronin in 2003.
The first of the species was spotted in central
Massachusetts, occupying a tree in Westborough, MA. Within a
year, a second of the species was seen ranging within the
same territory. Typically, they run in size from small (2-feet),
medium (3-4 feet), to large (6 feet +)
- females being the larger of the species.
A hardy breed, they can withstand exterior conditions of
temperatures ranging from below zero to more than 100
degrees. In windy conditions, the sharks become very active
- spinning, swimming and swirling in winds up to 50
mph.Their body shape, aerodynamics and weight allow them to
point-up into winds - protecting them from damage. They are
known to survive in conditions which range from winter
blizzard to summer hurricane.
They typically feed on birds, squirrels, and chipmunks - but
no human has ever seen them feeding. At least one North
American Tree Shark (#1), has been host to nesting birds for
several years - and still holds the nest within her belly,
although it has been some years since any eggs/hatchlings
have lived there.
A North American Tree Shark is ZERO threat to humans of any
size, and they can be welcomed inside your home, or are able
to spend decades outside, hanging around in a tree on your
property. The sharks may be found in two primary types -
aluminum or copper, both with stainless steel
