Caption: Tasseled wobbegong (Eucrossorhinus dasypogon) hiding in a rocky crevice. This is a large and well-camouflaged type of carpet shark, found around the tropical reefs of northern Australia. It spends the day resting in a crevice, emerging at night to feed on smaller fish. It can reach a length of up to 1.8 metres, and has been known to attack and even kill humans that approach too close. Filmed on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
