Wobbygong Shark



 Thumbnail

The Wobbygong Shark is also known as the Wobby, Wobbegong, Wobbygone Shark. It is a bottom dwelling shark that has a very flattened appearance to the body and "frills" around the mouth. The body is very mottled, allowing it to easily camouflage itself.

To alleviate the chance of acquiring an infection, a fine sand substrate is required in the aquarium, as its abdomen is easily scratched by a coarser substrate. It should never be exposed to copper-based medications.

When first introduced into the aquarium, small pieces of cleaned squid or live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. Then it may be fed shrimp, scallops or pieces of fresh marine fish.

The Wobbygong Shark should only be kept by expert aquarists.
