Caption: Grey reef shark (Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos) with other reef fish. This shark feeds on fish, as well as crustaceans and molluscs, and can be aggressive and dangerous, especially during a feeding frenzy. It has been implicated in attacks on humans. It is also very curious, being known to approach divers. This shark is found around reefs and lagoons, as well as the deeper waters on the seaward side of a reef. It can reach a length of 2.5 metres. C. amblyrhynchos is found in the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. Photographed off Moorea Island, French Polynesia, in the Pacific Ocean.
