Blacktip reef sharks. Fish-eye lens view of a shoal of blacktip reef sharks (Carcharhinus melanopterus) at the water's surface. These sharks are generally found in shallow coastal waters, 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. C. melanopterus is found in the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. Photographed off Moorea Island, French Polynesia, in the Pacific Ocean.
