Piked Dogfish Video Stock Footage
This shark is known to hunt in packs that can range up into the thousands. They are aggressive hunters and have a sizable diet that can range from squid, fish, crab, jellyfish, sea cucumber, shrimp and other invertebrates. Males mature at around 11 years of age, growing to 80–100 cm (31–39 in) in length females mature in 18–21 years and are slightly larger than males, reaching 98.5–159 cm (38.8–62.6 in). Both sexes are greyish brown in color and are countershaded. Males are identified by a pair of pelvic fins modified as sperm-transfer organs, or "claspers". The male inserts one clasper into the female cloaca during copulation.
