The shark family Hemiscylliidae, commonly known as the bamboo sharks or longtail carpet sharks, is a group of small to medium-sized sharks found in tropical waters.
Bamboo sharks are characterized by their slender bodies, unique coloration resembling bamboo, and elongated tails, which contribute to their common name "longtail carpet sharks." Bamboo sharks are generally harmless to humans and are often found in shallow, coastal waters.
