Another shark species from French Polynesia. It’s a shy but massive species and it was was very hard to come close for a picture.
“An aggressive, powerful apex predator, the Silvertip shark (Carcharhinus albimarginatus), feeds on a wide variety of bony fishes, as well as eagle rays, smaller sharks, and cephalopods. This species dominates other requiem sharks of equal size when competing for food, and larger individuals are often heavily scarred from conflicts with others of its species.” (Wikipedia)
