Small Orange Saw Fish ~ Plastic Replica ~ F0012-B23
Sawfishes, also known as carpenter sharks, are a family of rays characterized by a long, narrow, flattened rostrum, or nose extension, lined with sharp transverse teeth, arranged in a way that resembles a saw. They are among the largest fish with some species reaching lengths of about 7Â–7.6 m (23Â–25 ft). They are found worldwide in tropical and subtropical regions in coastal marine and brackish estuarine waters, as well as freshwater rivers and lakes. The most distinctive feature of sawfish is their saw-like rostrum with a row of whitish teeth (rostal teeth) on either side of it. Utilizing their saw as an extended sensing device, sawfish are able to "view" their entire surroundings by maintaining a position low to the seafloor.
