Did you know?

I had more aquarium training today so I'm following with some more trivia.

There's not a lot available on the web about the Bowmouth Shark (or Bowmouth Guitarfish). They are primarily bottom feeders eating crustaceans and mollusks. They have spines over their eyes, on the nape, and on their shoulder that can be used for defensive butting. The one at the aquarium was caught in a net in the waters around Taiwan.
