Bali Wobbegong Revealed
By Jason Heller, July 10, 2007 @ 02:00 AM (EST)

FiNS Magazine Associate Editors, DPG Contributors and marine life book authors Andrea and Antonella Ferrari (link http://www.reefwonders.net) have been lucky enough during a recent trip to Bali to encounter and photograph the elusive and yet undescribed Bali Wobbegong, a local and strictly localized subspecies of the Ornate Wobbegong Orectolobus ornatus, commonly found from Southern Japan to Australia. Much darker than the nominate species, this beautiful benthic carpet shark has also been found by famed marine biologist Robert Myers in the waters around Komodo – it uniquely seems to prefer cold upwellings, since the Ferraris have sighted it under an overhang at 15 meters in Nusa Penida’s Crystal Bay – at a chilling 19° C!
