The Oceanic Whitetip Shark is a large shark found worldwide in the pelagic regions of the sea – meaning the upper areas of the open ocean. This predator is named for the white splotches found on the tips of its rounded fins.
Scientific Name: Carcharhinus longimanus
Characteristics: This thick-bodied shark features a wide, blunt snout and long, rounded pectoral and dorsal fins. The shark’s streamlined body is designed to help it navigate its open ocean habitat in search of prey.
Size and Color: This figure measures 6 inches long from its snout to the tip of its tail, and is 2 inches tall at the top of its dorsal fin. This hand-painted, accurately detailed figure features gray brown coloration above with irregular dark spots, fading to white on its underside. Its fins are tipped with mottled white splotches.
