Pelagic Thresher Shark Description
  Grayish to dark charcoal in color, thresher sharks turn abruptly white on the belly and may be mottled on the lower half of the body. Threshers are further identified by the absene of a keel on the caudal penduncle; by their small, pointed and broadbased teeth; and by their comparatively smooth skin. Longtail and pelagic threshers have moderate-size eyes, and the first dorsal fin is set almost diectly in the middle of the back and far ahead of the beginning of the pelvic fins.
