  • Ovoviparity (aplacental viviparity), with embryos feeding on other ova produced by the mother (oophagy) after the yolk sac is absorbed (ref: fishbase)
  • Preferred temp 26 C, usually 0 - 150 m deep (ref: fishbase)
  • FL 157 cm = TL 171 cm; Ww (in g) = 5.2432e-3 * (FL in cm)^3.1407 (ref: KohlCase1996)
  • Fastest shark, 68 km/h (ref: Wiki)


  • Males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} and E_Hp only
