開普敦害羞的貓鯊

Underwater photography 水攝 Wide Angle 廣角 Scuba dive 潛水



世俗的名字 | 貓鯊科
我估狗不到確切的中文簡稱,可能因為台灣沒有吧,沒有甚麼中文資料
Common name | Puffadder shyshark 

沒有人記得起來的學名 | 埃氏寬瓣鯊
The Scientific name | Haploblepharus edwardsii



Puffadder ShyShark 是一種很可愛的小鯊魚,之所以會稱之為shyshark是因為
當他受到驚擾的時候為把身體縮成一團,頭藏到尾巴裡,看起來很像是害羞的樣子。

Not all the sharks are scary, Puffadder ShyShark may be the cutest shark in the world.
It gets the name from curling themselves up with its tail fin on top of its head while they feel a need to defend which we, the human interpret as shyness.




這種鯊魚住在南非的海床上,宗親族譜總共有the brown shyshark, the natal shyshark 跟dark shyshark。裡面除了Dark shyshark會分布到奈米比亞外,其他兩種都是南非地域性的鯊魚。

The Puffadder Shyshark live on the sea bed of South Africa. 
In its genus Haplobelpharus, there are three kinds of them: 
The Brown Shyshark, the Natal Shyshark and Dark Shyshark. 
Most of them are endemic to South Africa while only the Dark ShyShark 
can be found all the way up in Namibian Waters.

在南非看到他們的時候,他們躲在巨型水草與石縫之間,
拿大相機可能無法當跟蹤狂追他們跑。那天約看到三隻,其中一隻不怕人,
一直覺得他躲得很好,很大方的打量我。但因為真的很小很可愛,很像在逗家裡的狗玩。

The Puffadder ShyShark is just as cute as my dog. Hidden between kelp and stones, the Shyshark probably thinks that he hides well. I see three that day and stalk one of them with TG4. The big camera may not be ideal for crossing through kelp.
