The bowmouth guitarfish (Rhina ancylostoma), also called the shark ray or mud skate, is a species of ray and the sole member of the family Rhinidae. A rare fish, it is vulnerable to extinction for numerous reasons: fins for soup, bycatch, food, blast fishing, coral bleaching, siltation, and more.

(The Oarfish,17m as opposed to the Whale Shark, 12.96m in the Guinness Book of World Records.)) and is a filter feeder, comfortable cruising at depths of 200 m.
