head shaking back and forth, the jagged edges of its
saw slice and dice unfortunate prey. It catches a crustacean.
A piece of flesh is still on its saw.
This saw shark's Latin name is pristiophoriformes.
That's surely a long name. There is a saw shark called
Bahamas sawshark and ranges down to 3,000 feet and
looks for some prey.
The sawshark's diet is mostly of bony fish, small
fish, crustaceans, and squid. The sawshark helps people
and the other animals by eating these animals.
The sawshark can be found in the western Pacific,
the western North Atlantic, the southern Atlantic,
and the western Indian Oceans.
It is about one meter (3.3 feet) long, including
its long snout. It is brown and its belly is white.
Don't go near a sawshark because you could frighten
it, and it could cut you with its saw, but don't think
it will swim at you and kill you.
The way you can tell the difference from a sawshark
and a sawfish is by the color on the sawshark's back.
It is brown and the color of the sawfish's back is
a very light blue. Also the sawshark has two antennae
out of the middle of its saw.
