The family Carcharhinidae, commonly called the requiem sharks, includes many species of migratory sharks that primarily inhabit warm seas and sometimes brackish or fresh water. Members of this family are ovoviviparous, with the mother retaining the egg-cases in her body until they hatch. This family include the tiger shark, the blue shark, the bull shark, and the milk shark. Requiem sharks are responsible for a large proportion of attacks on humans.
