Description:
Blacktail reef shark (Carcharinus wheeleri) Indian Ocean. The blacktail reef shark (Carcharinus wheeleri) is a medium sized reef shark of up to 180 cm in length. Its Geographical distribution is confined to the Indian Ocean, where it is broadly distributed from the Red Sea where it is very abundant, the Arabian Gulf, south to Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, Madagascar, the Comoros, Seychelles and Aldabra and eastward to Thailand and Burma covering all the oceanic islands and atolls such as the Maldives and Chagos archipelagos. It is not known if it may be found in Indonesia and eastern Australia. The Blacktail reef shark is often confused with the Grey reef shark (Carcharinus amblyrhynchos) which is one of the most common reef sharks of the Pacific Ocean and not found in the northern or western Indian ocean and Red Sea, although the two species may overlap in south Asia, Eastern Australia and Madagascar. The two species are most distinct in their behavior, with the Blacktail reef shark being generally of a stockier build and with a white tip to its dorsal fin, which may vary from very small to sometimes almost half the fin being white tipped, this being absent on the Grey reef shark. The Blacktail reef shark is un-aggressive towards divers and has only been implicated on attacks where spear fishing activities are occurring. The Grey reef shark in contrast has been responsible for numerous attacks on divers and spear fishermen, and will often behave very aggressively if encountered in areas that are rarely dived or have never been dived before. It is well known for its curious threat display just prior to an attack.
