Leopard Shark

Triakis Semifasciata


This little baby was trapped in a tide pool. Likely caught by a fisherman and left to die. I tossed him back.

Great spotting nick but before you begin soliciting spottings for your mission you should read the mission parameters. Users can only create local missions.

That mission didn't used to be just for Queensland. That's why.

Cool picture but why is this under California missions as well as Queensland missions?
