Shark Species

At SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast

Discover Some of Our Shark Species

Grey Nurse Sharks

Pallas is a very chilled animal and likes to slowly cruise around the display. She has a droopy first dorsal fin. She loves to hover just above the substrate in currents where she can relax. Patches is the mischief maker of our GNS and keeps divers on their toes during feeding sessions. He has a lazy jaw so he will swim with his mouth open regularly. Huey is one chilled out dude! He loves to cruise the display and nothing bothers him.

Wobbegong Shark

Wobbegong is the common name given to the 12 species of carpet sharks found in shallow temperate and tropical waters around Australia. The Wobbegong is one shark you should be a little more cautious around. They are well camouflaged and harmless if left alone, but if you get in their face of trip over them, you’ll soon learn why they are known as the pitbulls of the sea!

Grey Reef Shark

Grey Reef Shark

The grey reef shark is one of the most common species of shark found in the warm waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Grey reef sharks are one of the smaller species of shark with adults reaching a maximum length of around 2m long and baby grey reef sharks being around 50cm long at birth.

Shark Fun Fact

The "modern" shark we've come to know today has been around since the Early Jurassic Epoch 174 - 201 million years ago!

See these creatures up close as they swim above and around you at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast's 80 metre long Ocean Tunnel.
