Is this a wobegon?

Recommended Posts

While I was looking at a coral this shark swam right next to me, sorry for the photo cutting his tail off (and this was with a FE lens too...) Is this a wobegon shark and does anyone have a resource for what the typical living range is for them? This picture is from yesterday (22nd) from the Keramas Islands near Okinawa Japan.

The only species I know of that is found outside the Australia/Indonesia area is the Japanese Wobbegong, Orectolobus japonicus which is found as far north as Japan.
