Wobbegong Strike 2 Wobbegongs apparently have the one of the fastest short distance strikes of any fish in the sea. I don't doubt that.

Wobbegong vs Moray Eeel A wobbegong shark has a bit of a fight with a moray eel at Julian Rocks in Byron Bay. Who will be the winner?
Wobbegong and Sea Dragon The cool waters here (Sydney, Australia) support a rich diversity of life that contrasts markedly with the coral reef dominated waters further north. Algae, sponges and kelp dominate the flora with a wealth of marine fauna including the Weedy Sea Dragon and Wobbegong. Both are masters of camouflage with the Sea Dragon finding protection amongst the kelp fronds while the Wobbegong uses its mastery of disguise for aggression, ambushing unsuspecting prey. Other animals that can be seen include several species of nudibranch, small sea anemones, sea urchin, shrimp and starfish.

Rye Pier Mullet and Wobbegong sharks.m4v Every late October at Rye Pier, on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne, we have been seeing schools of mullet coming in to Rye Pier, and along with them we also see wobbegong sharks, of up to 2.5m in length. These sharks generally lie about on the bottom motionless, but they are aggressive feeders and many divers have witnessed them lunging up to feed on the mullet. Personally I am yet to see and film this... so maybe next time! Enjoy this short video, it's another reason Port Phillip Bay is so diverse and unique. Coming next, I have a video of a dive we did with Seals on November 20th in the Bay... more great video uploads coming, including my wife amnd me in Mount Gambier where we snorkeled Ewens Ponds and Piccaninnie Ponds.

Wobbegong Shark Diving with Wobbegong Sharks at the Abrolhos Islands. One take 1.30 no edits, what happened after 1.30 (not shown here) was an awesome site to behold....at 49 secs in this clip you can see a white thing under the reef...that's a plastic bag with some fish scraps in it that i was feeding some Spangled Emperor. When the Wobbies showed up I stashed it under the reef and they were looking real hard for it. At the end of this film when the second Wobbly arrives, you can sea him making a "coughing" look/sound that you can actually hear.......that is a threat...and the 3rd Wobbly stood up on his tail like a snake ready to strike...amazing some things you see in the ocean at times

Wobbegong Filmed between Byron Bay, South West Rocks to Jervis bay in NSW, Australia 1985-1989. Wobbegong (Wobbygong) is the common name given to the eight species of carpet sharks in the family Orectolobidae. They are found in shallow temperate and tropical waters of the western Pacific Ocean and eastern Indian Ocean, chiefly around Australia and Indonesia, although one species (the Japanese wobbegong, Orectolobus japonicus) occurs as far north as Japan. The word wobbegong is believed to come from an Australian Aboriginal language, meaning "shaggy beard", referring to the growths around the mouth of the shark of the western Pacific./nWobbegongs are bottom-dwelling sharks and spend much of their time resting on the sea floor. The largest species, the spotted wobbegong, Orectolobus maculatus, grows up to 3.2 metres (10 ft) long./nBecause of this striking pattern, wobbegongs and their close relatives are often referred to as carpet sharks./nThey may also bite scuba divers or snorkellers and are very flexible and can easily bite a hand that is holding on to their tail. They have many small but sharp teeth and their bite can be severe, even through a wetsuit; having once bitten, they have been known to hang on and can be very difficult to remove.

The Wobbegong shark - extended version This is an extended edition of the first film. I had to change the music since youtube claimed it was a copyright violation. The video is a bit dark and my camera isn't the best, hopefully you can see some of the details. As I was snorkeling in Gordon's Bay I happened upon a Spotted Wobbegong shark inside a small cave. At the time I thought it was a Port Jackson shark as I had encountered one before, it was very dark under the rock (I couldn't see its head) and I had never seen a Wobbegong before. Since I thought it was a Port Jackson I considered pulling its tail as I've done before, but after reading up on the Wobbegong I'm very glad indeed that I decided not to! The facts in this video originate from various pages including: www.shark- www.shark- Especially the part in the first link detailing how the Wobbegong often bite and refuse to let go afterwards was a bit scary! However I do understand that they are mostly peaceful creatures if left alone, I'm just glad it wasn't laying with its head my way when I first bumped into it :) I'll definetly be more careful when entering the cave from now on. Be sure to rate us and check out our other videos if you like this one.
