Indonesians love to bring ‘oleh-oleh’ or souvenirs from their travels (strangely, they sometimes demand it too :P). Fortunately, we were given one from our Makassar crazy diving bunch when traveling to Raja Ampat, irian Jaya (west Papua). It’s a Wobbegong shark or Eucrossorhinus dasypogon up close and personal.
