Saw this thing 50 feet from me and swimming away and I didn't have time to take a better picture. Could you tell me what it is ? Shark???
Taken in 20 feet of water at the West Bay Beach in Roatan.
I don't think it's a shark, because you can see fin rays in the pectoral fins. Judging by the tail, that I think is forked pretty sharply, I'd say it could be something in the Jack family. But I'm afraid I'm not much more help than that!
