Giant Guitarfish

トンガリサカタザメ

At the bottom of the tank, you will find a fish that looks like a shark, called giant guitarfish. It lives in southern Japan and Indian Ocean and can grow up to be 2.5 m in length.

Although it looks like a shark, it is a species of the ray family.

They are frequently spotted around Kagoshima and often captured in gill nets.

In the Kuroshio Great Water Tank, a baby ray, about 30 cm in length, was born but we could not let it grow larger.
