A massive school of blacktip sharks were captured by a local photographer Wednesday.

Drone video of the sharks seen off Singer Island in Florida showed some of the fish flipping and thrashing their tails.

Photographer Paul Dabill told WESH2, that he was excited to capture some of the shark’s acrobatics.

The International Shark Attack File (ISAF) has recorded just 11 unprovoked blacktip reef shark bites on humans since 1959.

Atlantic blacktip sharks grow quickly, and can reach up to 6 feet in length. The oldest observed blacktip shark was 15.5 years old. They often form large groups, segregated into separate schools of males and females when they are not mating.
