Echinorhiniformes: Bramble Sharks (506 words)
Bramble sharks feed on a variety of fishes living on or near the bottom, including other sharks, elephant fish (a type of chimaera belonging to the genus Callorhinchus), hake, flatfishes, and herrings as well as crabs, octopuses, and squids.
Of stocky build with a moderately-sized mouth, bramble sharks are thought to feed by sucking in their prey at close range by suddenly expanding the mouth and pharynx, creating a powerful vacuum.
Note that those of the bramble shark have rounded bases and often fuse together, while those of the prickly shark are stellate with heavily-ridged spines and never fuse.
