Common Sawshark Description
  The most obvious feature of the sawsharks are their elongated blade-like snouts studded with teeth of various sizes. These unusual creatures, ranging from 80-140 cm, are rarely seen by divers but they are sometimes caught in gill nets set off beaches and taken seasonally by commercial trawlers.
