Sand tiger shark:  Like all sharks, sand tiger sharks breathe underwater, through their gills. But sand tigers have one unique habit: They are the only sharks that come to the surface to gulp air.

The air makes the shark more buoyant, so it can float motionless in the water as it watches for prey.
