SCHLEICH – Sawfish




Sawfish get their name from their head which, because of their teeth, looks like a saw.

They use it to hunt swarms of fish or root out crabs on the sea floor. Sawfish swing their saw across the sea floor and root out the crabs hidden in the sand.

Sawfish are members of the ray family.

These fish, up to 8 meters long, live in tropical and sub-tropical waters and astonishingly in both salt and fresh water.
