Photos of the Lemon shark (Negaprion brevirostris), also together with the Blacktip shark at the shark beach and the shark point of Walker´s Cay/Abaco islands/Bahamas.

During my stay on Walker’s Cay/Abaco Island, at the northern edge of the Bahamas, I was able to watch the Lemon Sharks (Negaprion brevirostris) almost daily. In the shallow water at the Shark Point, mostly smaller sharks were on the search for food in the late afternoon. I always met Bull Sharks and adult Lemon Sharks at the Shark Beach.

Lemon Sharks have a size of almost three metres and they grow up slowly. They need between 12 to 15 years until sexual maturity, the reproduction rate is low. They stay in coastal areas and often in the shallow water.

Lemon Sharks mainly feed on bonefish and molluscs, but the night-active Lemon Sharks also attack smaller sharks, rays and sea birds.

A special peculiarity is that they are also able to stay in fresh water for a short time.
