not very big, I'd say between 1m and 1m50...

hmmm how big was it? the shape of the head and snout and with it resting on the bottom are all indications of a white tip reef shark. Not to many other sharks that look that way in WA. You got a great shot of its head.

Thanks ScottHarte.... but are you really sure it's a white tip? Cause I didn't see any white tip or spot on it's body. Could it be because it seems like a young one? What do you reckon?
