Slice of Life #6 - Malaysia will amaze you
Today's blogpost is dedicated to the Black Tipped Coral Reef Shark, commonly found in the warm waters of the East Coast of Malaysia. Living 3°N from the equator certainly has some major advantages . The diversity of animals and wild life that we are exposed to are unique.
As an avid scuba diver, I am very fond of the black tipped reef shark, it is one of the most abundant sharks that inhabit the east coast of Malaysia. At first glance menacing, but majestic. It is characterised by the black tips on its fins. They love to swim in the warm shallow waters and are often found close to reef ledges and sandy flat areas. Interestedly, reef sharks prefer to stay in the same area for 3 -4 years at a time. The sharks often swim in schools.
I am doubly blessed as I have the chance to see the Black Tipped Coral Reef Shark in action on our Middle School, week without walls initiative - Malaysia Week.
