Fun Facts:

  •          They do not have to swim to move water over their gills.
  •          Whitetip reef sharks have white tips on their dorsal fins and tails.
  •          You can find whitetip reef sharks often rest on the ocean floor.
  •          They use sound to detect prey.

Whitetip reef sharks are magnificent animals! Like all sharks they have a skeleton made of cartilage! These beauties are also being threatened by humans. Our oceans are home to many beautiful creatures and we all need to work to keep those oceans clean. Make sure to keep plastics and trash in their proper places and not in our oceans!
