Description A tropical inshore shark, that inhabits sand, rubble, or coral bottoms of the continental and insular shelves. Able to squirm into narrow cracks, crevices and channel in reefs. Recorded to have entered freshwater (Ref. 4735). Temp. range: 26.0-29.0 °C (Ref. 4959). Rests on the bottom during the day and feeds mainly on molluscs, also on crustaceans (crabs and shrimps) and small bony fishes at night (Ref. 1602). Oviparous. Sluggish, slow-swimming fish; not aggressive when approached and generally regarded as harmless (Ref. 2334). May bite when provoked. Fair eating (Ref. 8528). It is used for fishmeal, oil, liver processed into vitamins (Ref. 9333), and the fins are dried for the oriental sharkfin trade in Pakistan (Ref. 2872). [details]
