|Angelshark (Squatina squatina)|
A. M. C. Duméril, 1806
An angel shark is a fish with a flat body. It gets its name from its long wide fins that look like wings. Angel sharks are bottom-dwellers. They bury themselves in the sand or mud with only their eyes and part of their bodies showing. Angel sharks live in the Pacific Ocean. They are often caught by other sharks for food.
