Caption: Blacktip reef sharks (Carcharhinus melanopterus) and stingrays. Blacktip reef sharks are found in shallow tropical coastal waters in the Indo-Pacific region, often around reefs, singly or in small groups. They hunt fish, but also feed on crustaceans as well as molluscs such as squid and octopus. They can reach lengths of 2 metres. Stingrays are common in coastal tropical and subtropical waters throughout the world. They feed on small fish and marine invertebrates such as snails, clams, and shrimp. Photographed in the Pacific, in French Polynesia.
