black-tipped reef shark

    Newer Older

    My wife has a tattoo of one of these on her shoulder blade.

    UPDATE: An artist (Roger Hall) contacted me about creating a fine art drawing of this shark. The finished product is here. Check it out, I think it looks awesome!! :-D

    If you like it (or any of Roger's other drawings) he sells them as well.

    Edit 8/4/10 - Found out that this photo is featured in a Discovery News article!!

    Edit 12/7/10 - Photo was used in an article on how sharks help us (humans) breathe better. Keen!!
