Galapagos Shark Description
  The Galapagos shark, also known as the grey reef whaler, is an aggressive requiem shark that is dark gray on top and has an off-white belly. Its tail has a black edge. There is a ridge running between the dorsal fins (the fins on the shark's back). The Galapagos shark was named in 1905 from specimens found near the Galapagos Islands (in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Ecuador).
