Negaprion brevirostris

(Poey, 1868)


Craig McInally Lemon shark (Negaprion brevirostris) nosing around the boat on a night dive off the Shearwater. These sharks look fierce bit are really quite mellow except when actively feeding.

Scuba Instructor Julian sweet. i've yet to see a shark at night, that will be an interesting dive.

Craig McInally Julian, I guarantee that sharks have seen you at night though!
