As many as 10 blacktip reef sharks were spotted just off the beach in Koh Samui on Tuesday (July 28), and the occurrence was shared on the Starving Travelers Facebook page with the caption “abundance of Koh Samui island”.

The blacktip reef shark is identified by the black tips on its fins, long thin body and a big mouth. They are known to swim into brackish water near the mouth of a river to hunt for food.

These sharks are not aggressive and usually feed on small marine animals. They are also known to swim up to divers and demand food.
