Blacktip Shark

The Blacktip Shark is bigger than the Blacktip Reef Shark but has similar coloration.

Here you can see the Blacktip Shark Leaping out of the water. They may do this 3-4 times because they are extremely energetic or because they are trying to dislodge remoras.

The average speed of these jumps is a whopping 23 ft. (7 m.) a second!
