Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

An inshore bottom-dwelling shark found down to at least 51 m (Ref. 244); also dwells in semi-enclosed sea areas with sand bottom (Ref. 11230). Probably feeds on benthic invertebrates, especially crustaceans (Ref. 13563). Viviparous, with a yolk-sac placenta (Ref. 244).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Viviparous with a yolk-sac placenta. Produces 5 to 16 young per litter, with larger adults having larger litters of young. Gestation period is 10 months, birth occurring in April and May. Size at birth about 28 cm (Ref. 244).
