Grey reef shark and black-tip reef shark. The grey reef shark (Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos, right) can be aggressive, especially during a feeding frenzy, and has been implicated in attacks on humans. It is found around reefs and lagoons, as well as the deeper waters on the seaward side of a reef. This shark can reach a length of 2.5 metres. The black-tip reef shark (Carcharhinus melonopterus, left) is a small shark, rarely exceeding 2 metres in length. It is common in shallow water and inhabits coral reefs and intertidal zones. Both sharks feed on fish, crustaceans and molluscs. Photographed in the Pacific Ocean.
