    Now seeing sharks mating is a very rare occurrence.
    While we were snorkelling at Magnetic Island just off the coast of Townsville in Australia.
    @terrybogan spotted some movement on the ocean floor. At a closer look it was actually two Epaulette sharks making love.

    At first it looked like they were fighting, but by biting each other is the only way they can get some grip, and it is actually the female that starts biting first, then the male will bite the pectoral fin of the female with his mouth and lies alongside her for the grip, to get a claspers in.
    Now I have never seen an Epaulette shark before so this was a great moment to witness.

    Female Epaulette will lay around 20–50 eggs per year. It takes 120 -130 days for them to hatch.
    Male and female reach their sexual maturity around seven years old.

    It was very interesting to watch. Nature sure is awesome!
