Welcome to WOBBY, the baby Wobbegong shark :)
We have a new baby Wobbegong on MahaRaja reef. We called it "Wobby" :)
Wobbegongs are one of the most singular and the most amazing sharks.
With their flat body, their beard and their pattern, they can easily hide among the sea floor.
They sleep during the day and ambush hunt during the night. Under their weird carpet look, they have small sharp tooth.
There are only few place in the world, where they can be seen, mainly in Australia and western part of Indonesia.
Wobbegongs are ovoviviparous, which means that the female's eggs develop within her body and it takes 11-12 months to give birth. Wobbegongs are listed as near threatened on the IUCN list and their population is declining.
One more reason to welcome and to appreciate the presence of this baby Wobbegong our reef :)
