Sharks in Singapore Waters!

Date October 23, 2013

During our dive at Pulau Hantu over the weekend, we were lucky to encounter a young pair of what we believe to be Brown-banded bamboo sharks Chiloscyllium punctatum.

Four other species of bamboo shark have been recorded to occur in Singapore, the grey bamboo shark (Chiloscyllium griseum), Hasselt’s bamboo shark (Chiloscyllium hasselti), white-spotted bamboo shark (Chiloscyllium plagiosum), and slender bamboo shark (Chiloscyllium indicum), a small species inhabiting sandy coastal waters that is occasionally caught by anglers.
