TG0690-D. Oceanic Whitetip Shark (Carcharhinus longimanus), followed by many Pilotfish (Naucrates ductor). Pilotfish are semi-obligate commensal symbionts, associated with sharks, turtles, and other pelagic animals.

Oceanic whitetip sharks feed on wide array of bony fishes, cephalopods, mammals, even birds. Egypt, Red Sea.<br />
