Read full entry


Very little is known about the biology of the Indonesian speckled carpet shark (4). During the day it hides in coral crevices or under overhangs; at night the carpet shark becomes more active, and can be found using its pectoral fins to 'walk' along the sea bottom, hunting prey such as bony fishes and invertebrates (3).
