A Giant Shovelnose Ray (Rhynchobatus djiddensis) swims over the top of the wreck of the SS Yongala.
This amazing looking fish looks to be mix of a ray and a shark and can grow up to 10 feet in length. They are rarely seen by divers, and very little is known about their nature. They are thought to crustacean hunters on ocean floors like similar rays.
The SS Yongala was a passenger ferry that sunk with all hands off the coast of Townsville in Queensland, Australia on March 23rd 1911. Since then it has become one of the premier dive sites in the world and has been designated as a protected national site by the Australian Government under the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976
