A medium-sized fish found in shallow oceanic waters.

Blacktip reef sharks are cartilaginous fish that can be found in tropical oceans. At half the size of a dog, they pose no threat to dwarves. As fully-sized creatures, they can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with a drowning chamber. An infant blacktip reef shark is called a blacktip reef shark pup.

Being cartilaginous, blacktip reef sharks won't give bones if butchered (though they'll still provide a skull).

Some dwarves like blacktip reef sharks for their curiosity and their distinctive dorsal fin.

Admired for its distinctive dorsal fin.
