Caribbean Reef Shark (Carcharhinus perezii)

The outer cayes of Belize are home to several species of sharks, including hammerheads, grays, blacktips and bulls. This one followed us up from Halfmoon Caye Wall and kept us company buy making several close passes while we decompressed in the flats! Sadly, in March of 2016, illegal fishing claimed the lives of several sharks here, but this one, a tagged female, escaped the poachers gill nets.
