IUCN Red List Status: Data Deficient
This is a rare, deepwater species of dogfish, found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans
Recorded at depths of 2,530 ft (779 meters)
This is a small shark, reaching max sizes of ~3 feet (93 cm) total length
This species of shark has a black mouth and tongue!
Related species have experienced population declines and been quite vulnerable to fishing pressures, highlighting the need for more data on these sharks
Size at maturity is unknown, and many other aspects of biology are unknown as well
Reproduction is ovoviviparous (remember what this is?), and the number of young is low, perhaps only producing 1-2 embryos per litter
Perhaps you will be the scientist to discover more important data about this species!
