Info

Der Zitronenhai ist, wie der Bullenhai, ein typischer Riffhai, der die flachen Zonen bevorzugt. Daher ist es auch schon bei dieser Art zu unliebsamen Begegnungen zwischen Mensch und Tier gekommen.

Diese Art kann, ähnlich wie der Bullenhai, gut mit starken Schwankungen in der Salinität umgehen.
Die Art ist dämmerungs- und nachtaktiv. Zur Paarungszeit und zur Geburt verlassen auch die Zitronenhaie für eine gewisse Zeit ihre angestammten Gebiete.

Die Jungen wachsen in typischen Kinderstuben, wie etwa in Mangrovenlagunen, auf, wo auch andere Fische ihren Nachwuchs zur Welt bringen.
Der Tisch ist hier zum einen reichlich gedeckt und zum anderen werden diese Zonen i.d.R. nicht von größeren Freßfeinden aufgesucht.

Es gibt öffentliche Aquarien, die diese Tiere halten, doch deren Eignung für eine Haltung in Gefangenschaft ist umstritten.

Shark bites can be quite lethal to humans, especially the 10 most dangerous shark species are considered and can launch unprovoked attacks from humans: - Great white shark - Bull shark - Tiger shark - Sand tiger shark - Blacktip shark - Bronze shark - Spinner shark - Blue shark - Hammerhead shark - Whitetip shark The bite by a shark is one of the most basic fears of humans, but the number of deaths caused by shark attacks is very low: in 2015 there were 98 attacks by sharks and in 6 cases the attack resulted in a fatal end for humans. In 2016 there were 107 attacks by sharks and in 8 cases the attack resulted in a fatal end for humans.

Please be careful not to go into the water with bleeding skin wounds, heed bathing warnings from the authorities and be very careful when using surfboards, as sharks can easily confuse the boards with seals and harbour seals. After shark bites, always call a doctor or / and the rescue service as soon as possible, as heavy bleeding can be life-threatening.
