A shark bit a woman on the buttocks while she was snorkelling in Western Australia's famed Ningaloo marine park on Christmas Eve, but it was not reported until days later.

She was in the Bundegi Sanctuary Zone up to one kilometre from shore in five-metre deep water, in the afternoon on Christmas Eve, the Department of Fisheries said on Wednesday.

The woman did not see the shark, but felt a bump, and sought treatment at Exmouth Hospital.
