Family: Orectolobidae
Nine interesting facts about Tasselled Wobbegong:
1. The Tasselled Wobbegong (Eucrossorhinus dasypogon) is a shark species that belongs to the family Orectolobidae that includes the ‘Wobbegongs’ and ‘Carpet Sharks’
2. This species is found throughout the warm tropical waters of the western Pacific region and has been recorded in countries such as Papua New Guinea , Indonesia and along the Great Barrier Reef in northern Australia .
3. The Tasselled Wobbegong looks very similar in appearance and is closely related to the Ornate Wobbegong (Orectolobus ornatus ) and the Spotted Wobbegong (Orectolobus maculatus ).
4. This wobbegong shark can be recognised by the continuous fringe of branched tentacles around its mouth. Its body is a light sandy/grey colour with a series of dark edge spots in shades of brown with also some small white blotches all over the body.
5. The reproductive method for wobbegong sharks is known as ovoviviparous which involves eggs being laid within the uterus and hatching before birth so that live babies are born.
6. This shark species is an ambush predator and strikes out at any passing prey such as fish and octopus. It is a master of camouflage and blends in very well with its coral reef surroundings.
7. It can be found on coral reefs from depths of 1 to 20 metres and is considered to be a solitary species. It is often seen under overhangs and ledges and can occasionally be encountered in shipwrecks.
8. Similar to other wobbegong species this shark has the ability to bite its own tail so it pays to heed caution when approaching the Tasselled Wobbegong.
9. The Tasselled Wobbegong grows to a maximum length of approximately 3 metres.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

As someone who regularly volunteers at an animal shelter this is so so so important! 

Important. Try adopting disabled pets. Trust me.

(Bunnies and Sunshine)

Easter is coming up! And it’s a terrible time for pet store bunnies!

Rabbits are marketed as “easy”, short-lived, starter pets, especially during the Easter holidays, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! A healthy, well cared for bunny can live just as long as the average cat or dog- 10-12 years!

What’s more, they have more complex needs than a cat or a dog. Rabbits are prey animals and do not behave or show affection in the same way as predators like cats and dogs; they don’t deal well with being outside-only animals; they can get sad if they’re on their own and don’t receive enough attention; and if they’re bought as a male and female couple, they can start reproducing from as early as 5-6 months of age, and they can carry multiple litters at the same time!

They have a specialised diet (NOT carrots!), need a specialised living area (unless you want all your things to get chewed up!), and they need specialised vets! Caring for them costs as much as caring for a dog!

They’re a big responsibility!

This Easter, Make Yours Chocolate!
