Some creatures you will meet here
Grey Nurse Sharks
Pallas has a droopy first dorsal fin. Patches is the mischief maker and keeps divers on their toes. Huey loves to cruise the display and nothing bothers him.
Grey Reef Shark
The grey reef shark is one of the most common species of shark found in the warm waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans and can reach a maximum length of around 2m.
Wobbegong is the common name given to the 12 species of carpet sharks found in shallow temperate and tropical waters around Australia. They are well camouflaged and harmless if left alone.
Fascinating Facts About Sharks
Are you interested in learning more about sharks? Check out some fascinating facts about these incredible creatures of the deep that you may not have known before.
Firstly, sharks don't have bones like most animals. Instead, their skeletons are made from cartilage, which is similar to what our noses and ears are made of. This unique feature makes their skeletons lighter, allowing them to be naturally buoyant and swim without sinking or rising.
Secondly, did you know that you can find ancient shark teeth in our oceans? Sharks constantly lose their teeth throughout their lifetime, and they can go through thousands of them. Due to the quick decomposition of their cartilage-based skeletons, the only remains often left behind after death are the shark's teeth. As a result, most known shark fossils are only of shark teeth.
