Caption: Tasselled wobbegong shark (Euchrossorhinus dasypogon). This type of carpet shark (family Orectolobidae) is coloured in order to camouflage itself against algae on the sea bed. The appendages around the head mimic sea plants, helping to camouflage the shark and attract prey, which include crustaceans and small bony fish. Photographed off the Raja Ampat Islands, West Papua, Indonesia.
