Wobbegong Shark

The wobbegong shark is a bottom-dewlling creature that spends most of the day resting on the sea floor. They usually do not grow larger than 2 (6.6 feet) metres, but the spotted wobbegong can grow to about 3 meters (10 feet). Because of their well camouflaged patterns, wobbegongs are typical ambush predators and catch small fish. Wobbegons are generally not dangerous for humans, unless they are provoked. Divers who poke or touch them have been bitten, as they can easily bite a hand that is holding on to their tail because of their flexibility. It’s best to stay clear and avoid contact at all times.
