White tips on first dorsal fin and upper lobe of tail. Slender body with blunt head. From 0,6 m upto 2 metres in length
Mostly resting on the bottom on rocky reefs or in/near caves during daytime, but at Cocos Island also observed swimming in large groups during daytime. Very active & hunting in groups during nighttime.
These sharks are the most abundant around Cocos Island - literally thousands and thousands - on each dive the amount of spottings would always be well above 100, with max. spottings during night dives
