Another common variety of reef shark in the Maldives are white tip reef sharks, which is similar in size to grey sharks but is a paler shade of grey with a white tip on the end of their dorsal and caudal fins. Baby white tip sharks and their adult counterparts are also found around the coral reefs maldives. While the reef sharks are the most commonly spotted in the Maldives, there are many threats to reef sharks because they are still hunted for their meat, their fins are exported to China and most importantly, they are not protected yet.
