The bowmouth guitarfish (Rhina ancylostoma), also called the shark ray or mud skate, is a species of ray and the sole member of the family Rhinidae. A rare fish, it is vulnerable to extinction for numerous reasons: fins for soup, bycatch, food, blast fishing, coral bleaching, siltation, and more.
Angular Rough sharks (Oxynotus centrina) found in Atlantic waters close to South Africa, these are rare and little known animals. They measures up to only about 60 inches, although most of the specimens found were not bigger than 28cm.It is a species considered vulnerable to extinction, and many say it looks like a bulldog from the sea.
