Reefie Cleaning Station!

Cleaning station at Shark Reef - click for detail!

Check this out.

The Shark?
According to Will White, not a Grey Reefie, Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos but a Shortnose Blacktail Shark or Blacktail Reef Shark, C. wheeleri from the Western Indian Ocean and the Red Sea.
Still not convinced!

But wheeleri or not, talk about angelic patience in view of all those paparazzi!
We got two of those cleaning stations on Shark Reef but the Sharks will only play when the right current is running, and only rarely tolerate spectators. Still hoping to see a Bull joining the queue but so far, no such luck.

Anyway, cool footage!
