Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Distribution: Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Long, inferior mouths extending behind eyes. Gill openings 5, the fifth well before pectoral fin. Jaws not very protractile in Odontaspis and Pseudocarcharias; jaws very protractile and the rostrum projected in Scapanorhynchus (=Mitsukurina). All the known species are of large size up to 3.6 m or more. They occur in coastal and slope waters in tropical and temperate latitudes. They feed on a wide variety of bony fishes, other sharks, rays, squids and bottom crustaceans. Development is ovoviviparous, without a yolk-sac placenta but with uterine cannibalism. [details]

They occur in continental and insular waters from the outer shelves and down the slopes to possibly 1 600 m, on seamounts, and with one species (Odontaspis noronhai) also oceanic in the epipelagic and possibly the mesopelagic zone. [details]
