Caption: Grey reef shark (Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos) swimming over a coral reef. This shark is found around coral reefs and lagoons in the Indo- Pacific region. It is primarily a nocturnal hunter and feeds on fish, crustaceans and molluscs. It is known to be aggressive, particularly during a feeding frenzy, and has been implicated in attacks on humans. It is a curious animal and will approach divers. The grey reef shark can grow up to 2.5 metres in length. Photographed at the North Pass of Fakarava Atoll, French Polynesia, Pacific Ocean.
