Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Abundant in lagoons of coral islands, often in deeper areas near drop-offs. Frequently found in large groups, may become very aggressive if food is in the water. Feeds on reef bony fishes, squid, octopi, crabs, lobsters and shrimp. Viviparous. More active nocturnally. Readily enters into a frenzy feeding pattern, at which time it may become quite dangerous. Repeatedly incriminated in human attacks. Shows microhabitat separation from the blacktip reef shark. [details]
