Oh, look, some horn sharks.
I’ve never drawn any bullhead sharks before, so hopefully these guys came out okay. Horn sharks live off the pacific coast of the US, which is probably why they used to go by Heterodontus californicus instead of the now accepted Heterodontus franscisci. Speaking of names, “Heterodontus” translates to “different teeth” quite appropriately, because while most sharks only have pointed teeth, the horn shark has both pointed front teeth the grab prey, and molar-like teeth farther back to crush harder shells and all that jazz. They seem pretty laid back, though. They hardly move, actually. Why should they? They are horn sharks, they can do what they want.
