Feeding Frenzy!

Pic by Paul & Paveena McKenzie

Great footage!

The location is undoubtedly the same as here.
The Groupers are spawning Camouflage Groupers and whereas the majority of the Sharks are Grey Reefies, I also detect one Silvertip, two Sicklefin Lemons and some of the resident Blacktips C. limbatus. This is the holy grail of Shark cinematography, i.e. completely genuine natural predation.

Enjoy!

Hey

Time for the First comment ;)
Was there the whole May this year.
You forgot the Blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus) @ 3:30

I guess this is also the reason why this scene is in slomo ;)

keep up the good work! Like to read your
personal view of thinks.

They normally don't come so close. I guess this is the reason why this is in slomo ;)

Keep up you good work in this blog!!!

Ulong Channel?

Merci Daniel - but I do specifically mention limbatus?
Good on 'ya for having been there for a whole month, it's an awesome place!
Isn't May when the Grey Reefies mate?

Angelo, no it's not Ulong Channel - but as with all spawning aggregations it's best not to mention location details.
