Donating to the Museum

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"Saw sharks got their name from their long head lined with spike-like 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."

Further information

Sawshark

A real Sawshark

Sawsharks have long blade-like snouts edged with teeth, which they use to slash and disable their prey. The sharks typically feed on fish, squid, and crustaceans, depending on species. They cruise the bottom, using the saw to detect prey in mud or sand, then hit victims with side-to-side swipes of the saw, crippling them.

Although they are similar in appearances, sawsharks are distinct from sawfishes. Sawfishes have a much larger maximum size, have evenly sized rather than alternating sawteeth, and have gill slits on their under-surface rather than on the side of the head.
