The tasseled wobbegong is a bottom-dwelling shark found in the shallow coastal areas and reefs in parts of Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia. It has a distinctive shape with a flattened body and head and broad pectoral and pelvic fins. There is a crescent-shaped spiracle behind each eye.
The coloration and intricate mottled pattern on this wobbegong’s body make it almost disappear against the reef bottom. A fringe of branching skin flaps run around its mouth to obscure the outline of its head. It can even change color, over several days time, to adjust to environmental conditions.
