About this species

Identified by its whitish body and broad vertical stripes (9-10), which are thicker at the top and taper toward the underbelly area (ventral region). They have small mouths and chisel like teeth. Juveniles are darker so it is more difficult to see the bands. Log this species if you spot it on the west, east and south coasts of TASMANIA. Read more…
