Freycinets Epaulette Shark Description
  This species has spots on the head and in front of the eyes that are slightly smaller or equal to the eye diameter. In specimens of approximately 30 cm (11.8 inches) or more the body is covered with a honeycomb of rusty-brown spots on a cream background with an inconspicuous eye-spot present over each pectoral fin. Juveniles, in contrast, have alternating dark brown and tan bands that break up into spots as the shark grows.
