Totally ignored the fact that a saw fish was literally above our ride. 🐋🤷🤔 Worst camera result due to the darkness, but had to capture this creature! .
It's mouth has a very close resemblance to human lips (creepiest part). But a total nature's beauty 💞🐠🦈 Amazed! 😍 .

More stunning #indigenousart from our friends and project collaborators the @yukubajamulikurangers from #capeyork. #sawfishes are culturally very important for many #indigenousaustralian communities, and #traditionalknowledge is often encoded in #art. @jamescookuniversity PhD student Karin Gerhardt is working with the YBM community to understand how indigenous knowledge can be respectfully and appropriately applied to management and conservation. #sharkscience #sharkresearch #ranger #jculife #australia #aboriginal #collaboration #lovethereef #pacific #ocean #tropics #marineconservation #saltlife #endangeredspecies #jcuresearch

Have you ever seen saw fishes (not in an aquarium)? I had a lot of problems in finding a picture of these amazing animals while in their own habitat.

Thanks to @mpophotography for the beautiful shot and to @saveourseasfoundation for helping in the conservation of many ray and shark species!

___________

OceanFact: Did you know that almost 30% of saw fish’s total body length is given by the saw (rostrum)? Saw fishes are also known as carpenter sharks and are a family of ray characterized by a long flattened rostrum lined with sharp transverse teeth arranged like a saw. The five species that compose the gender of sawfishes are considered as endangered or critically endangered of extinction from the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Today (17th October) is the very first #IntlSawfishDay ! International Sawfish Day is an event created in partnership with the Sawfish Conservation Society, the European and American Associations of Zoos and Aquariums who want to raise awareness for Sawfishes. The aim is to educate people on the threats they face as well as developing conservation strategies that will protect them. Sawfish are large, shark-like rays of warm, shallow, coastal waters, estuaries, and rivers. Their tooth-studded snouts (rostra), which are easily entangled in fishing gear, and their low reproductive rates make them exceptionally susceptible to overfishing. Sawfish are also threatened by degradation of habitats such as mangroves. There are only five species of Sawfish in the world – the Knifetooth Sawfish (Anoxypristis cuspidata) and Dwarf Sawfish (Pristis clavata) are classified in the IUCN Red List as Endangered, while the Smalltooth Sawfish (Pristis pectinata), Largetooth Sawfish (Pristis pristis) and Green Sawfish (Pristis zijsron) are Critically Endangered. They are considered the most threatened elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) in the world due to destructive fishing practises, habitat destruction and the curio trade. The various Sawfish species range from 1.4 metres to 7.5 metres in length, making them true #megafish . They can be found in inshore coastal areas such as coastal lagoons, estuarine environments, and brackish river deltas, although they may also swim up rivers into freshwater environments. Sawfishes prefer shallow, muddy, brackish water, spending most of their time on or near the seabed. The rostrum contains extensive sensory organs that can detect the minute electrical signals from prey. It is used to ‘club’ fish - stunning or killing them before they are eaten. Three species of Sawfish were historically recorded in Singapore waters - the Knifetooth, Largetooth, and Green Sawfishes. However, they are now extremely rare, if not already locally extinct; the last record was in 2001. Sadly, Sawfishes have already disappeared from most of the areas where they were once found, and more needs to be done to protect the few surviving populations around the world.
This sawfish looked as if he were trying to make a jailbreak! #aquarium #fish #seacreatures #ocean #aquarium #sawfishes
This #taxonomytuesday : Elasmobranchii is a subclass of fish belonging to the Chondrichthyes class (also known as cartilaginous fish). This subclass contains two extant superorders: Selachii (sharks) and Batoidea (skates, sawfish and rays).
The fish of this subclass are characterized by the absence of the swim bladder and 5-7 pairs of gill slits.

Sawfishes are nocturnal, usually sleeping during the day and hunting at night. Despite their fearsome appearance, they do not attack people unless provoked or surprised. The small-tooth sawfish is well known by fishermen as a prize game fish because of the fight it puts up once hooked.
