You got.... PEANUT!

Peanut is an Epaulette Shark (Hemiscyllium ocellatum) who is very inquisitive! Peanut likes to perch on the rock between walls and between coral. Peanut's favourite snacks mostly consist of invertebrates, especially a yummy crab!


Epaulettes are the tricksters of sharks! They have an interesting defense mechanism of having a large black spot on the sides of their body, this confuses predators as it looks like a giant eye making the shark appear bigger!
