Diving - Sharks and Rays
A Whitetip Reef Shark (Triaenodon obesus) tries to get some rest on a nice soft patch of sand at Panettone Kandu.
Bjorn points out three wary Grey Reef Sharks (Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos) in the distance at 25m at Emmas Thila.
Two beautiful, elegant Spotted Eagle Rays (Aetobatus narinari) swim past in the distance below me at about 35m at Kuda Miaru Thila.
They flew behind us and up the reef slope.
A couple of Whitetip Reef Sharks (Triaenodon obesus) swim past at Kuda Miaru Thila.
A Whitetip Reef Shark (Triaenodon obesus) swims lazily past me across the reeftop at the end of our dive at Kuda Miaru Thila.
A Whitetip Reef Shark (Triaenodon obesus) swims near us and settles down on the sand at 20m for a kip at Fish Head.
