Black Tip Reef Shark

Black Tip Reef Shark

Please note: Our Black Tip Reef Sharks are currently residing at our sister site in Great Yarmouth whilst we undergo exciting renovations to our Ocean Tunnel. We will be welcoming them back to the centre in February 2016.

Black Tips are among the most popular sharks inhabiting the tropical coral reefs of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, because Black Tip Reef Sharks prefer shallow, inshore waters. They are typical in appearance of how humans imagine a shark to look, and can be seen at our big ocean tank!
