Caption: Sicklefin lemon shark (Negaprion acutidens) with other reef fish. This large shark feeds on other, smaller sharks, rays and other fish. It is found around reefs and in lagoons, as well as mangrove swamps. It can reach a length of nearly 4 metres, and is dangerous if provoked. Its meat is eaten by humans, and its fins and liver are highly prized. N. acutidens is found in the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. Photographed off Moorea Island, French Polynesia, in the Pacific Ocean.
