The Tasselled Wobbegong is the greatest ambush hunter of all sharks. Its tasselled chin and intricately coloured skin allow this shark to perfectly blend into its surroundings.  It inhabits shallow coral reefs off northern Australia, New Guinea, and adjacent islands. The name “Wobbegong” means “shaggy beard”. These sharks have been seen ‘walking’ across one tide pool to another using their bottom fins to move themselves, as long as their gills are wet, they can survive the short trip.

Happy Valentine’s Day my marine bio lovelies!

I give you, all the above! Shark Love!

Instead of something cheesy to give your admirer, why not make a donation to your favourite conservation group? Show them you care not only about them, but the marine environment too!
