The largetooth sawfish is found in the tropical Indo-West Pacific from East Africa to New Guinea, the Philippines, Vietnam and Australia. It can also be found in the eastern Pacific and in the Atlantic. The largetooth sawfish inhabits sandy or muddy bottoms of shallow coastal waters, estuaries, river mouths, and, occasionally, freshwater rivers and lakes.
This sawfish preys on bottom-dwelling invertebrates and fish, as well as small schooling fish such as mullet or herring. It uses its saw or “rostrum” for digging in the sand or mud for prey, slashing schooling prey and as a defensive weapon.
You can find several the largetooth sawfish in the Ocean Voyager gallery.
