Tasseled Wobbegong Description
  A tasseled wobbegong has a stunning variety of spots, bands, and other markings that help it hide among the coral reefs it calls home. But most striking is the shaggy-looking fringe of skin that flaps all around its broad mouth. The tasseled wobbie is of a type known as the "carpet shark" because of its low, flat shape. It grows to about eight feet long.
