Grey reef shark - Chibi by zavraan Grey reef shark - Chibi by zavraan
Ya all know that reef sharks are my favorite species~ But now I'm going to tell you why.

This is actually the first shark that caught my eye and inspired me to make the comic. The gracefull and strong form of this shark is beautifull. They are not actually grey. They are dark-grey-brownish. But because of the light underwater, it looks blue-grey. Their top speed is 40 klm an hour. They have 2000 pounds of bite force and are almost always in a group/pack/school. They also one of the few sharks who can get really close to humans. Divers have never gotten this close to a shark before. Many reef sharks only circle around these divers waiting for their snack tocome up on a stick. The sharks know that the food hiden in the box is more important than the divers. The divers are mostly outnumbered by a whole ton of reef sharks. But out of all the things these can do to them, they don't. This shark is also huggeble and not dangerous to humans. There are millions of people swimming in shark hunting areas and very few people are bitten. Not all sharks are perfect and their senses may not always work, so they will mistake a human for a fish.

Above all, these sharks are very close to humans and we learn more everytime we visit their world.
Reef shark, I love you. :heart:

Thank you for reading!

that is so cute. he looks like a pup :). the only thing that i see that looks inaccurate is how strong a grey reef shark's bite force is. from what i've read and seen in documented experiments on bite force, grey reef sharks have a bite no stronger than 150-200 pounds, barely stronger than that of a human. bull sharks are the ones with the most impressive bites: they're bite is the one that comes close to 2000 pounds of force. great whites don't even have that strong a bite. their's is barely even half that strong.
