MuseumEdit

An information board in the aquarium will provide information about this fish.

"Saw sharks got their name from their long head lined with spikelike teeth much like a chain-saw blade. Sensors located below their mouths detect prey as they press their flat bodies against the seabed to search. They will sometimes swing their 'saws' wildly amid a school of fish, catching any that are struck."

In real lifeEdit

SawsharkIRL

The Japanese Sawshark is a species of sawshark found in the northwest Pacific Ocean around Japan, Korea, and northern China. It is found over sandy or muddy bottoms at depths of 160 to 2,600 ft. It can grow up 4'6" long.

The sharks typically feed on fish, squid, and crustaceans. They cruise the bottom of the ocean, using the barbels on the saw to detect prey in mud or sand, then hit victims with side-to-side swipes, crippling them.
