Product Description

Product Description

A Smooth Hound Shark moderately-sized, rather slender shark with two high dorsal fins; grey-brown with no prominent white spots on the dorsum. Snout gradually rounded with elongate and prominent nasal flaps which are well seperated from each other and the mouth; internasal distance more than 1.4 times nostril width; eyes large, horizontally elongate with strong subocular ridges; spiracle rather prominent. Mouth triangular in shape, with teeth in both jaws. The gray smoothhound lives in coastal waters, especially on shallow sandy bottoms and muddy bays. It reaches a maximum length of four feet and is very slender. The gray smoothhound is gray with mixtures of blue and brown in different places on its body. This shark feeds on benthic (bottom-dwelling) prey such as worms, clams, crabs, shrimp, octopuses, and small fish. It has short, blunt teeth and small grinding plates that are well-adapted to feeding on shellfish.
