June 24, 2008: Saw What?

Sawfish on the left, and Sawshark on the right.
No, there is no Sawdolphins.

If I saw either one, I'd be walking on water, damn quick.

Skylight  Tuesday Jun 24 03:39 AM

both have got to get nose jobs..

SPUCK  Tuesday Jun 24 05:41 AM

I never saw one of those before.

They have incompatible saw pitches..

DanaC  Tuesday Jun 24 05:55 AM

Are sawfish a type of shark? They look so similar from underneath...

DucksNuts  Tuesday Jun 24 06:31 AM

They both look like members of the KKK

spudcon  Tuesday Jun 24 07:21 AM

Saw fish?

footfootfoot  Tuesday Jun 24 09:36 AM

I see said the blind fisherman as he picked up his fish hook and saw.

Or not.

Nope, one's a fish and one's a shark.

Imigo Jones  Tuesday Jun 24 11:49 AM

A happy sawshark comes from a loving home.


Father: Hammerhead dolphin
Mother: Circular sawshark

Diaphone Jim  Tuesday Jun 24 12:09 PM

The shark is the one on the left, not right. They are especially strong since those long things on their noses are barbels.

barefoot serpent  Tuesday Jun 24 12:19 PM

Torpedoes! Los!

barefoot serpent  Tuesday Jun 24 12:22 PM

or saw-whet?

birdclaw  Tuesday Jun 24 02:12 PM

Looks like they are both frowning. But I guess if I had a head shaped like that I wouldn't smile much either.

Sarasvati48  Tuesday Jun 24 03:54 PM

Sharks are fish...

Sarasvati48  Tuesday Jun 24 03:57 PM

Oh, and they belong to the same family...

Big Sarge  Tuesday Jun 24 04:04 PM

The sawfish & the sawshark are two different creatures. Did you know the sawfish have been known to swim up the Mississippi River? They can grow to be about 18-20 feet long

Madman  Tuesday Jun 24 04:19 PM

I wonder if they have teeth? Sure would hate to get bit by one.

Sheldonrs  Tuesday Jun 24 06:48 PM

If you are swimming and you see a sawfish and a hammerhead Shark, you are screwed.

No they're not. Sharks don't have bone. They only have cartilage. Fish have a skeltal structure. That's the main difference. There's also the fact that sharks must move forward at all times to pass water through their 'gill' area whereas fish don't.

Just because they live in the same environment doesn't mean they're the same creature.

Saying sharks are fish is like saying humans are snakes. Obviously there are some humans with snake-like characteristics, but they're still not snakes.

DJ is right. The one on the left goes by the scientific name Pristiophorus cirratus and is found in the waters around southern Australia’s outer continental shelf, and is endemic to that region.

There are a few different varieties of saw shark, but they all come from the Pristiophorus family. Lay people will often refer to a sawshark as a sawfish though, so it's possible that's where the confusion arises? You can see that the one on the left has the two longer prongs. That's what identifies it as a saw shark. The one on the right doesn't have them and the structure of the snout is different.

Elspode  Wednesday Jun 25 12:20 AM

A shark is a fish. It is a cartilagenous fish.

spudcon  Wednesday Jun 25 01:03 AM

But are they good with tarter sauce?

Cloud  Wednesday Jun 25 01:05 AM

their little eyes are cute.

sort of.

if you squint.

xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Jun 25 01:12 AM

Those aren't eyes, they're ports for the frickin laser beams.

I was reminded of that too. And also of The Coneheads from Saturday Night Live.

The next in the sequence is posted on the WTF NSFW thread.
Saw arse.

Brighter close-up of mouth

SPUCK  Thursday Jun 26 06:22 AM

Tuna will croak if they stop swimming.

Sundae  Thursday Jun 26 08:11 AM

Gaudi's gaudy folly.
They sure don't look like shark teeth to me.....

spudcon  Thursday Jun 26 03:35 PM

Isn't that the latest module on the ISS?

HungLikeJesus  Thursday Jun 26 03:59 PM

No, it's the new WTC.

Griff  Monday Jun 30 09:22 AM

That is not appropriate humor. Some of us lost bids on the new WTC.
