White Tipped Reef Sharks

Reef sharks are very common in tropical waters and they are generally quite timid. These shots show that on the more popular dive sites they become used to divers and it is quite safe to approach them. Both of these sharks were five to six feet long and the lower shot shows one 'resting' on the bottom. It also has a Remora attached to it. Remora are often seen attached to sharks by small suckers and they eat scraps of food left when the shark feeds.


  1. Sorry, that's just too scary! That's a mighty big eye that shark has!!

  2. Yeahhh the eyes do freak me out
