Shoalhaven news 1929

Wobbegong sharks, or commonly know as a “carpet shark”, because of the unusual carpet like pattern across their body, they can get quite large and have an array of nasty teeth similar to a grey nurse shark, they are one of the few sharks that can lay stationary on the bottom and don’t need to be swimming to have water flowing across their gills, their usually not aggressive, but have been known to cause severe injury to divers, and spear fishermen who inadvertently stand or lay on this well camouflaged shark.
