We Go Diving in the Galapagos
Location: Galapagos Islands
- These smaller sharks get their names from the white tips on their dorsal fins and tail fins.
- Whitetip reef sharks hide out in rocks during the day.
- The sharks will share caves during the day.
- They often chase their prey into crevices. Their narrow snouts and rear sitting dorsal fins help them get in to tight spots to get food.
- Whitetip reef sharks can live up to 25 years.
- They tend to be shy sharks.
We did a nice dive at near dusk so we could spot these elusive and shy sharks. They didn’t want to stick around when they saw us- but at least we caught a glimpse or two! We love the creatures you find in the oceans!
