It's feeding time for the bull huss in the Cool Seas zone! They are having a treat of prawns today, their favourite snack. This species is native to the UK and has many other names - nursehound, greater-spotted catshark, greater-spotted dogfish, and rough hound shark! These guys are juveniles but they can grow up to 160cm as adults. Bull huss are listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List with two of their main threats being overfishing and habitat loss.
