EAGLE RAY (Common) JAW

(Myliobatus)

spotted-eagle-ray.jpg (130567 bytes)

Eagle rays are a group of cartilaginous fishes in the family Myliobatidae, consisting mostly of large species living in the open ocean rather than on the sea bottom.  Some systematists place the cownose rays & manta & mobulas in their own families (Rhinopteridae and Mobulidae, respectively) 

They feed on mollusks and crustaceans, crushing their shells with their flattened teeth, while devil and manta rays filter plankton from the waterThey are excellent swimmers and are able to breach the water up to several meters (9') above the surface. Compared with other rays, they have long tails, and well-defined rhomboidal bodies. They are ovoviviparous, giving birth to up to six young at a time. They range from 48 centimetres (19 in) to 9.1 metres (30 ft) in length.

GOBLIN SHARK JAWS (RARE)

Mitsukurina owstoni

mvc-625s.jpg (68726 bytes)  goblin shark jaw.jpg (47665 bytes)  closeup goblin shark.jpg (36984 bytes)

goblinshark2.jpg (63985 bytes)  goblinshark3.jpg (57581 bytes)  goblinshark4.jpg (50661 bytes)

 A deep-sea shark, the sole living species in the family Mitsukurinidae. The most distinctive characteristic of the goblin shark is the unorthodox shape of its head. It has a long, trowel-shaped, beak-like rostrum or snout, much longer than other sharks' snouts. Some other distinguishing characteristics of the shark are the color of its body, which is mostly pink, and its long, protrusible  jaws (i.e. when it reaches for something to eat, the jaws seem to unhinge from the front of the shark and catch its prey, then retract back to the shark's head.  A very weird thing to see.

They are found throughout the world, from Australia, Pacific Ocean to Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean, but best-known from the waters around Japan, where the species was first discovered.  

They feed on squid, crabs and deep sea fish, that we know.
