New Epaulette Shark!


Mark and Gerry have found another one!
And the species is probably legit - despite of Gerry being Joshua's splitting co-perpetrator of those infamous Pacific Damsels!
After the 2008 crop of Hemiscyllium henryi and H.galei from Western Papua, here comes the spanky new H. halmahera from Ternate! Incidentally, none of them is an apex predator nor a keystone species, nor are they being hunted for their fins - but they are all cute and they all walk!
Just saying!

Behold the new walking Shark in action!
