I believe you're referring to shovelnose ray.

yo alleycat. actually i saw this big fish at ubin 2nd bridge; 1-1.5m long. 3/4 of the bridge wall partition. i shone light at it, then he just swam off. Happneed too fast and i didnt get to identify it.The van uncle told its rui peng and quite common at night. but then the shape of fish looks more like a nurse shark.

I wouldn't say it's impossible to be a shark or a shovelnose Ray to be there, but do you think it could be a monitor lizard swimming? It was dark after all... :p
