Wobbegong Sharks Add a Subtitle

Wobbegong shark species are "Carpet Sharks" which means they blend into the ocean floors almost seamlessly. Their body is flat to easily lay on the ground and escape predators while also waiting for their unsuspecting prey. Their dermal lobes on their face act as camouflage and bait.
These sharks eat things like crustaceans, octopi, some bony fish, and even other sharks. They use their jaws to chomp down and can eat things as big as them by holding them in their teeth until dead then they will eat it in chunks.

The smaller species of Wobbegong have been kept as pets because they only grow between 2 and 4 feet, they don't swim too much, and they only eat about twice a week making their captivity more "justified".
