The Wobbegong Shark (mostly referred as Wobbegong, even in real life) is a tier 9 animal in It is based on its real life counterpart, the Gulf Wobbegong, Orectolobus halei. It is one of the animals a Barracuda can evolve into, the others being the Lionfish and the Hammerhead.

Introduction[ | ]

The wobbegong is the common name given to the 12 species of carpet sharks in the family Orectolobidae. Wobbegongs are bottom-dwelling sharks, spending much of their time resting on the sea floor. Wobbegongs are well camouflaged with a symmetrical pattern of bold markings which resembles a carpet. Because of this striking pattern, wobbegongs and their close relatives are often referred to as carpet sharks.

The wobbegong shark in game keeps many of the features of its real life counterpart. It has a camouflage ability, which will make it look almost invisible when it is stationary. What's more, the shark can emit a powerful suction and swallow its prey whole!
