Diet

They hunt the shallow waters when the tide goes out, feeding mainly on crabs and worms.

Fun fact

This is the only shark that can walk! They're able to use their paddle shaped fins to 'walk' around and hunt for food.

Habitat

Found in the Western Pacific in the shallow water of coral reefs, often in tide pools.

The Epaulette Shark is a relatively small species, growing to up to 107cm long. It's common across northern Australia and northern New Guinea in generally shallow, inshore waters and coral reefs. It's thought they mate between July and November with two egg capsules produces and left among the coral at night. Eggs hatch after about 120 days with the size at birth about 14 to16 cms.

Animal zone

Lagoon of Light

The Lagoon of Light is home to an array of colourful tropical fish, amazing corals and large mangrove trees.

Representing where the rainforests meet the reef, the lagoon reflects the diversity of aquatic life and unique habitats found in and around many of the islands and archipelagos in the western Pacific Ocean, from tropical North Queensland to the outer islands of Palau in Micronesia.
