      Lesser-spotted catsharks live in the Western Atlantic, North, and Mediterranean seas. Check out the species profile page for a map.

      They are completely harmless to humans and there has never been any case of an attack on people. Unless you count when they accidentally nibbled my fingers while I was feeding them by hand.

      Most sharks are completely harmless to humans and your chances of being attacked by one of the few species which can do you any harm are less than being struck by lightning.
