Wobbegongs are known to ambush, stalk, and lure their prey. Wobbegongs are adorned with spots, bands, or reticulations that help them disappear among sun-dappled coral, coralline algae and larger macroalgae. This and other distinguishing characteristics make them a highly successful ambush predator.
In this CoralRealm feature article we examine the predatory tactics of the wobbegongs. Not only does this article include a comprehensive examination of wobbie feeding behavior, there are also several rare photos of these sharks eating their prey.
