Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Tropical inshore sharks of the Indo-West Pacific, very common on coral reefs. Large sharks that combine a broad, low caudal fin about as long as the rest of the shark. Nasal grooves, barbels, a small transverse mouth in front of the lateral eyes. Two spineless dorsal fins, the first dorsal much larger than the second. Prominent ridges on the sides of the body. A banded (in juveniles) or spotted color pattern. Oviparous, laying eggs in large, dark brown or purplish-black cases with fine lateral tufts of hairlike fibers. Feeds primarily on molluscs (gastropods and bivalves) but also crabs and shrimps and small bony fishes.  [details]
