Sharks You Should Know: Oceanic Whitetip Shark

published 10 years ago by George C. Schellenger

A recent death and several injuries in the Red Sea are being blamed on a type of shark - the Oceanic Whitetip. Officials believe the Oceanic Whitetip Sharks were attracted close to shore near Sharm El-Sheikh after a boat dumped dead cattle into the water. Some environmentalists say the sharks moved closer to shore, due to a lack of food. This time on the Shark Task Force, we take a closer look at this shark - and why it's always investigating its surroundings.
