Has anybody ever told you "you lie like a carpet"?
Well, that's certainly true of our nine new baby wobbegongs - or
carpet sharks - a fitting name given their propensity to sit at the
bottom of the ocean waiting for food.
After being born at just the size of a hand, the new babies have
now been released onto display at Sydney Aquarium, having reached a
healthy 1 foot long - and well on their way to reaching their full
size of over 3 meters.
Now big enough to meet the public, the cute little wobbys can be
seen enjoying their new home just across from the Shark Nursery and
chomping on the odd bit of fish or squid tentacle.
New baby wobbegongs are just one of the exciting things to see
during Shark Month
at Sydney Aquarium, which brings you more jaws than ever before
- more shark talks; the chance to see big sharks from the surface
for the first time; and watch shark feeds from the Glass Bottom
