More warm weather saw me back in the ocean today and this time I took my camera just in case I saw the shark from yesterdays swim - Here is the proof !

What is it ?
Port Jackson shark
Distinguishing features
1• No tassels or skin lobes extruding from the upper lip
• Prominent spines extending from origins of both dorsal fins2
3• Dark markings on body behind head in shape of a harness – thin
horizontal stripes
• Box-like head shape
• Crests above eyes slope away gradually behind eyes

Water temp was a cool 17 degrees.
