Thanks BT!!!!!!!!!! Black tips dont have much of....a black tip it seems!
That's because the shark on the bottom could be a fine tooth shark, which is very often confused with a blacktip and a spinner shark. Only way to know is to see the teeth.
The blacktip marks under the fins are the ones that are clearly visible on most blacktips and fine tooth sharks.
Here is the info from the Florida Museum of Natural History website:
Blacktip sharks:http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/fish/gallery/d ... shark.html
The black tips found on the pectoral fins, first and second dorsals, pelvic fins, and lower caudal lobe are very apparent, though they tend to fade with age. The blacktip does not usually have black tips on its anal fin. The similar-looking spinner shark (Carcharhinus brevipinna) does usually develop a black tip on its anal fin several months after birth.
