    No.

    The Sand Shark likes to spend time in the bays . They are found on both sides of the Atlantic coast, but most notably in the Gulf of Maine. There are four species in two genera. Most sand sharks are found from Cape Cod south, but they aren't found in great numbers below the Delaware Bay.

    The sand shark's mouthful of teeth can send chills through you. Still, this is not a man-eater. Instead, it is somewhat sluggish and lives on the bottom of the sea or close to it.

    no , they do not go on land, since they would have no way of breathing if they did.

    some species of sharks can beach themselves to catch prey, but this doesn't happen very often. and when they do so, they always make sure that there is a way for them to get back in to the water.

    Yes from a point of view the sharks have been observed that actually followed their pray from the ocean to the bay and then returned back to sea by coming waves

  • sand sharks are strictly aquatic. most sharks cant even stop swimming otherwise they would sufficate from the lack of oxygen passing through the gills.

    No.

    Sharks cannot go on land, although some would beach themselves partly to catch seals, but they do so that they can always back up in the water after, meaning most of their body remain in water.
