The Tasselled Wobbegong (Eucrossorhinus dasypogon) is a large, floor-skimming shark found only in Endless Ocean: Blue World.
This fish is wide and flat. Its color and pattern blend into the sand or reef where it lives, making it hard to see. Its wide mouth, filled with long, sharp teeth, extends around the front edge of its head. The mouth is surrounded by long, beardlike tassels that imitate bait.
It usually lies still on the sea floor until prey approaches or it feels threatened, in which case it moves and attacks swiftly.
Care must be taken when swimming in areas where it lives; it is so well camouflaged that it is easy to get too close and inadvertently cause it to attack.
These can be found in areas scattered with man-made debris, like the Shipwreck, all year round.
2 of these are found in the Cavern of the Gods, one in each small room in the southern corridors in the temple (A4 and D4).
- Despite its name not labeling it so, this creature is actually a shark. Wobbegongs are a family of 12 carpet shark species that fall under the superorder of Selachimorpha (sharks), despite the dissimilar appearances.
