Sharks & Rays.

Sharks vary in size from less than a metre to the huge plankton eating Whale sharks that can reach 15 meters in length. The most commonly encountered sharks in South East Asia are probably the Blacktip shark, the Whitetip Reef Shark and the Leopard shark. The most common rays are probably the Blue-spotted Fantail Stingray. Manta rays have a wingspan of around 3 metres while other rays are much smaller.
