BLACKTIP SHARK
Order - Carcharhiniformes
Family - Carcharhinidae
Genus - Carcharhinus
Species - limbatus


The blacktip shark gets its name from its distinctive black markings on the tips of its fins.

This unique oranda share the same distinctive markings on the tips of every pectoral,every pelvic,every anal including its dorsal as well as its caudal fins with more contrasting hue and stronger demarcation compared to the previous two orandas..Doesn't it resemble somebody donning some kind of costume before going to a masquerade party.(all black gloved up)The tail fin is abit torn through some rough handling and the dorsal first ray is a bit nibbed off but over all I just can't resist to own it.Looks very much Thai in origin.
