  • While sawfish are often confused with sawsharks, there is one easy way of spotting the difference. While both are cartilaginous elasmobranches, the sawshark is a true shark with gills on its side, while the sawfish is actually a ray and its gills are found underneath.

  • Scientific Name: Pristidae

  • Characteristics: There are only a few species of sawfish - Smalltooth, Queensland or Dwarf, Knifetooth, Narrowsnout, and Common Largetooth. They range in size from about 4 ½ feet for the Queensland, to the largetooth at around 23 feet and 1300 pounds.

  • Size: 10.25" L x 3" W
