"Saw sharks got their name from their long head lined with spikelike teeth much like a chain-saw blade. Sensors located below their mouths detect prey as they press their flat bodies against the seabed to search. They will sometimes swing their 'saws' wildly amid a school of fish, catching any that are struck."
