it's longish body certainly does make it look like a shark but they actually are from the same family as stingrays. :) The bottom is flat like rays too. I hope to get one of these monsters someday. :nod:

There are several species of shovelnose ray and some of them do indeed live in freshwater.

It's primarily a saltwater fish but breeds close to shore or estuaries with brackish water. But there are also reports that it can stay in freshwater too.
