Baby steps: These newborn epaulette sharks are using their fins to get around their exhibit, just like the adults.

The epaulette shark (Hemiscyllium ocellatum) is a small species of longtailed carpet shark found in shallow, tropical waters (typically coral reefs or in tidal pools). The common name of this shark comes from the very large, white-margined black spot behind each pectoral fin, which are reminiscent of military epaulettes. Something unique (and adorable!) about these sharks is that rather than swimming, sometimes they “walk” by wriggling their bodies and pushing with their paired fins.
