Distribution Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans mostly in tropical coastal waters. Body form intermediate between that of a shark and a skate. Also called shovelnose sharks. Numerous small, blunt teeth in jaws. Two large dorsal fins; caudal fin well developed. Denticles arranged in a row on dorsal midline. No spine in tail. They reach moderate to large size and are important commercial species in many coastal nations. Ovoviviparous. Feed on bottom organisms, including molluscs and crustaceans, but will also take small fishes.  [details]
