An Australian adventurer has shared incredible footage of a seemingly empty sandbar with a creature lurking just below the water — but it’s not visible to the naked eye.

Brodie Moss runs a successful TikTok account with some of the amazing native marine creatures found in the northern regions of Australia, including turtles, sharks and crabs.

On Sunday, he shared a video of an island he set up with his dog, pausing to look in the sand for a sea creature that could barely be detected.

“Wow, check this out. Looks like there’s nothing here, right? Well, wait and see,” he told the camera.

Gently sliding his hands into the sand, Mr. Moss scooped up an Oriental Shovelnose Ray that had been hiding in the shallows.

When it comes into contact with his hands, the young man swings backwards as it darts away, back into the open ocean.

The Oriental Shovelnose Ray is easily identified by its wedge-shaped disc, its long triangular snout and its coloration.

“Wow, check this out. Looks like there’s nothing here, right? Well, just wait,’ he said to the camera

Its diet includes penaeid shrimp, carid shrimp, stomatopods, crabs and other crustaceans, as well as fish and mollusks.

It is native to Australia and is often found in warmer waters on the eastern side.

“How the hell did you see that?” asked one of his followers.

‘Big eyes! What did you notice? The dorsal and tail fins?’ said another.

The post is reminiscent of another video shot by a young father in Western Australia.

Immediately a shadow appeared right in front of him and swam closer, revealing itself as a large tiger shark frolicking in the shallows.

“We were on our way for a swim and saw a fin so my husband splashed a bit to see if he was aggressive and he came straight at him,” Janelle told FEMAIL.

“We’ve decided not to swim with the kids there.”

Their followers were shocked by how difficult it was to spot the shark initially, despite the sunny day and clear water.

“Despite the clear water, it was hard to see until it hit the very shallow water,” one woman noted.

‘LOL. I was willing to laugh at people being overly paranoid, but then it popped up. Okay fair,” said another.
