Group White-tipped Reef Sharks (Triaenodon obesus) White-tipped Reef Sharks (Triaenodon obesus) are highly social and often lie together in groups like this on the bottom, stretched out side-by-side. Sometimes they are stacked like logs near the cave where they rest during the day. These sharks typically have a very small home range. Whitetip reef sharks go out in packs at night to feed on fish, octopus, spiny lobsters, and crabs. Shark Alley, Academy Bay. Santa Cruz Island.
