The pigeye shark, Carcharhinus amboinensis, is a requiem shark also know as the Java shark. It is found in tropical shallow waters close inshore, near the surf line and along beaches, and in shallow bays and estuaries. The pigeye shark is large and stout-bodied with a thick-set head, a short, broad and blunt snout, small eyes, medium-sized gill slits, and large, triangular, saw-edged upper teeth. Its color is greyish, white below, the fins having dusky tips.

The pigeye shark feeds on bony fish, sharks and rays, squid, shrimps, cuttlefish, octopuses, lobsters, and gastropods. Females are viviparous, giving birth to live young, with yolksac placenta. Size at birth is approximately two feet. Males reach sexual maturity at about six feet, females at about seven feet. Its pigeye shark flesh is used fresh and dried-salted for human consumption.
