Shark Photobombs Tourist

“Dude, you’re blocking the stingray.”

360 reblogs and likes and NO ONE noticed it’s a Swordfish and not a Stingray… modern education I blame you.

Uh, swordfish? You’re quite mistaken there…This is a Sawfish (Family Pristidae),which indeed belongs to the superorder Batoidea,aka cartilaginous fish commonly known as rays and skates (although not necessary stingrays; those belong to the superorder Myliobatoidei.)Research, bro, it’s a great thing. 

Cog-nito, you are wonderful. :)

Right back atcha :D 

For anyone wondering how to tell this is a sawfish (and not a swordfish or sawshark) swordfish look like this. And for the sawfish/sawshark difference, sawfish have gills on their ventral side while sawsharks have gills on their sides. Also, sawsharks have cute barbels on their snouts, which this guy doesn’t.

yea, my bad, I meant sawfish.  It was late and I was tired, but I did catch it wasn’t a stingray which no one else did.  lol

    Indeed that is a sawfish! Although, it may be worth noting that there are a whole group of sharks known as ‘sawsharks’...
