Hmmm… First there’s a hammerhead shark, and now there’s a “Sawfish”! I love this ocean! How about some bolt and nut octopi! Well, anyway, back to the sawfish. This toolkit is full of amazing facts. Such as that they kill their prey by slashing it with their toothy face extension. Yum, Yum! Pre-sliced dinner!
Anyway, you might be wondering why the sawfish is on this website for endangered animals. They are going extinct because of many reasons, including overharvesting and entanglement in fishing gear. Sadly, barely anyone notices that these amazing animals are going extinct. The sawfish population went down already five percent since the first Europeans came to America. The first sawfish species to become endangered was the small tooth sawfish. It started nearing extinction in 2003.
