Bida Islands at Ko Phi Phi: An Underwater Video

Bida Islands at Ko Phi PhiThe dive sites at Ko Phi Phi provide an excellent chance to photograph larger fish such as Black-Tip Reef Sharks and Leopard Sharks.

These docile, nocturnal creatures are normally found lying on the sand facing into the current; they are one of only four species of shark that doesn’t need to keep swimming in order to breathe. They like to eat crustaceans, small fish and sea snakes.

Surprisingly little else is known about the species, although they are believed to be closely related to the Whale Shark. They can grow up to 3.5 meters and are completely harmless to humans.
