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.
