Tasseled wobbegong

Can you see this very unsharklike shark? He’s the brown dotted coral-looking flat thing in the center of the picture. Perhaps you can see his tassels waving from his head. These wobbegongs, classified as “near threatened” spend most of their time blending in with the scenery in oceans near Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Australia.
