The Caribbean Reef Shark is a requiem shark found in the tropical western Atlantic and the Caribbean, from Florida and the Bahamas through to Brazil. In the Atlantic, they are rarely found north of the Florida Keys. The Caribbean Reef Shark is one of the largest apex predators in these areas.
(Apex predators as adults, are not normally preyed upon in the wild in significant parts of their range by creatures not of their own species). Caribbean Reef sharks typically are seen cruising the edge of reefs, over deep water.
