Almost like it’s saying: “If I can’t see that I’m out of the water, then I’m not out of the water.”
This stout shark is one of two species of carpet shark in the Brachaeluridae family (the other is the bluegrey carpetshark (Brachaelurus colcloughi)).
They are endemic to eastern Australia, and are commonly found along the bottom (mainly rocky or seagrass beds), from the intertidal down to 140 m (460 ft) deep. They can frequent tidal pools, and may become trapped from the receding tide. No worries, though. They can survive for a while outside of the water!
They are pretty sluggish during the day, hiding in shady areas (such as caves or ledges) until nightfall. That’s when the blind shark hunts for its munchies: small invertebrates, cuttlefish, squid, sea anemones, shrimp, crabs and bony fish.
They can be easily kept in captivity, but are not valued by either commercial or recreational fisheries. Thankfully, these are pretty hardy sharks, and usually can be returned to the water alive (hooray!). The IUCN has assessed these critters as “Least Concern.”
