Caption

Lemon shark (Negaprion brevirostris) hunting on a coral reef surrounded by tropical fish. This shark, which can reach a length of over 3 metres, inhabits coral keys, docks, bays and river mouths in coastal regions. It is usually marine, but will occasionally enter freshwater areas. It only enters the open sea in order to mate. It feeds mainly on fish, but also takes crustaceans and molluscs. The lemon shark is found on continental shelves in the coastal regions of the Atlantic from the USA to Brazil, and in the Pacific from Baja California, Mexico, to Ecuador. It may also be found off the coasts of some west African countries. Photgraphed off Moorea island in the Tuamotu archipelago, French Polynesia, Pacific Ocean.
