Bamboo sharks usually have those stripes.I think these are juvenile nurse sharks because I've seen bigger ones before

There are quite a few species of bamboo sharks, from what I've seen it's actually the juveniles that have more prominent stripes than in adults. The above shark in the picture is actually an adult or close to one, almost a meter in length.
