White Tip Reef Shark
- This species is found all across the Indo-Pacific region. It is found almost exclusively in coral reef habitats along the coral heads and ledges. Sometimes they can be seen near sandy flats, in lagoons, or near deep drop offs.
- The preferred depth is 8 to 40 meters (26 to 130ft) making this a shallow swimmer.
- Since they are Viviparous, eggs are held in the placenta of the female fish for 10-13 months until birth.
- Females are usually pursued by males for an extended period of time, at which point, the males will initiate contact by grasping the pectoral fin and maneuvering the two of them into proper position.
- Females give birth to 1 to 6 pups at a time and pregnancy lasts for 10 to 13 months.
