A wobbegong, a type of carpet shark, slides through the grass in cabbage tree bay. they typically blend well into their surroundings, but every now and again they come out of hiding and catch the light just right. .

This isn’t what it looks like! rather than being the product of hate, this seeming fight is actually the product of love...sort of. these two wobbegong sharks are trying to mate. to do this, the male latches onto the female’s body with its jaws, which is why females tend to have thicker skin by the pelvic region! #nature #oceansqueens #shark #saveoursharks #stopfinning #photography #wildlife #mate #underwater #dive #australia #wobbegong

The wobbegong shark,
orectolobus maculatus

the word wobbegong is believed to come from aboriginal language, meaning "shaggy beard", referring to the growths around the mouth of the shark.
wobbegongs are well camouflaged with a symmetrical pattern of bold markings which resembles a carpet. they make use of their relative invisibility to hide among rocks and catch smaller fish which swim too close, typical of ambush predators.

wobbegong are bottom-dwelling sharks, they spend much of their time resting on the sea floor. they are well camouflaged, typical of ambush predators. they hide among rocks and caves to catch unsuspecting fish.

Todays boat dive at #broughtonisland dive 1. was at #northrock, water clarity wasn't perfect but i wasn't complaining as i was surrounded by 15 beautiful nurse sharks (or in any ither country - the sand tiger shark or jagged tooth shark) varying in size from >1m up to 2m+ (but none as big as last weeks!). these are one of our endangered shark species that inhabit headlands all over the coastline of nsw. broughton island can have in excess of 20 sharks on a single dive. i cannot wait to check out the resident sharks around swansea, seal rocks and south west rocks 😁😁
also during this dive i saw a tiny baby wobbegong (didnt make the cut due to my poor photography 😅) aswell as a fully matured adult resting under an overhang, plus loads of big and small fish happy to have some screen time.
dive 2. was to #lookingglass , way deeper and way more surge. less marine life but an awesome underwater landscape dive.
videos will come next!!!

comment 3 star 79 6 days ago

#scubadiving the #greatbarrierreef with @prodivecairns was an awe inspiring privilege. this is just a sample of the incredible diversity found there:
1 - pseudobiceros flatworms ripple through the water in surreal fashion, stopping to feed on algae

2 - silly-looking many spotted sweet lips were found in pairs hidden in coral

3 - the primitive looking and highly intelligent cuttlefish changed color as it retreated from a diver

4 - the nocturnal ornate wobbegong was spotted hidden resting during the day. we almost swam right by this gorgeous 2 meter long carpet shark!

5 - playful clownfish dart around happily in their anenome home

6 - territorial titan triggerfish are known for chasing divers who come too close to their nest!

7 and 8 - our first night dive involved being surrounded by dozens of giant trevallys and whitetip reef sharks
9 - tiny christmas tree worms live their entore lives in a single hole in the coral. the reef is teeming with hidden invertebrates.

10 - a side by side comparison of healthy and bleached coral. the future of the reef is bleak and rapidly worsening, unless the climate situation improves.

One of popular goals among scuba divers who goes to raja ampat, is to have the chance meeting with one of the most hard-to-find creature lives in the sea of raja ampat, it is the wobbegong shark.

tasselled wobbegong (eucrossorhinus dasypogon) can be found in australia and new guinea ocean, is one of shark species known as 'carpet shark', they live in a cave or bottom of the sea and love to spend much of their time sleeping the whole day, thus, they are well in camouflaged among reefs and corals also on the sea floor. wobbegong are considered as 'lazy shark', way much less aggresive compare to tiger shark, hammerhead, white tip or other types of sharks, but surely it can attack humans if they feel threatened or disturbed.

you can imagine how happy i was when finally met this ugly-looking and beardy fish in raja ampat at citrus ridge point at around 25 m deep. she was enjoying herself daydreaming under a rock while we took her pictures. thankfully our camera flash didnt seem to wake her up.

we were pretty lucky to find it not as hard as we thought it would be knowing they are classified as endangered species, and got my pic next to this scary looking fish makes it the highlight of my raja ampat trip!

i bet she was in the highest dream state here, cause i'm pretty sure i could hear she was snoring in a broad day light! 📸: @ikhsananchan, @tommykendarto , @ndar_hendar

This is it. wobbegongs shark!! the main star of raja ampat.
tasselled wobbegongs shark (eucrossorhinos dasypogon)

the shark in this pic is probably 1.3-1.5 meter long. it is quite a big shark.
quick facts. the name wobbegong is believed to come from an australian aboriginal language, meaning "shaggy beard", referring to the growths around the mouth of the shark. it can only be found in papua and australian water.

Wobbegong in raja ampat
#carpetshark #wobbegong i was a bit too close; wobbegongs are ambush predators and if they feel unsafe, they may bite, and they will not let you go!
this shark appeared from the middle of nowhere and then swam in front of us. i will never forget this shark encounter!

This was a great encounter i had a few weeks ago. i happened upon a large wobbegong shark in a protected, cave-like bommie. i really admired the patterning on the sharks tail, and the mossy face. what a beautiful animal.

These guys blend in pretty well with their surroundings. normally they hide under a rock ledge or in the kelp but this one kept it simple and hid on the seafloor..no wonder people step on them! although not this one, as he (or she) was 3-4 metres below... #wobbegong #wobbegongshark #shark #sharks #cabbagetreebay #marinelife #marinereserve #manly #shellybeach #shellybeachmanly #fairybower #snorkel #snorkelling #snorkeling #dive #carpetshark

Not always easy to spot! especially when the visibility has gone down to zero... like swimming in milk mixed with ash from the fires. i couldn't spot anything from the surface but saw a couple of wobbegongs when i swam down and nearly head-butted a few!!
