Wards Wobbegong Shark
The wards wobbegong has a small flattened body with dermal, fleshy
lobes on sides of the head, two below and in front of each eye, with
well developed spiracles behind the eyes, unbranched and broad, with
unbranched nasal barbels. First and second dorsal fin equal-sized.
Birth size unknown, adults can reach a size of approximately 63cm (
24.8in) and possibly reach up to 80 to 100cm,(31 to 39.3in.) males
reach sexual maturity at 45cm.(17.7in.)
Compared to other wobbegongs they have a sombre color pattern: a few
dark spots, dusky mottling, and three large dark, light-edged (ocellate)
rounded saddles separated by broad dusky areas without spots or
reticular lines in front of first dorsal fins.
Not a lot of data, but this species probably feeds on fishes and
Nocturnal. Inactive (sometimes found with head under a ledge )during
Australia, Western Australia, and Queensland. They occur in shallow
reefs and often found turbid water.
Not a lot known, but most likely ovoviviparous.
Unknown, but unlikely as they are somewhat shy and docile. No
reports of being aggressive.
Not fished, possibly common.
