Info

Underside of a Fiddler Ray also known as Banjo Shark on white background

The fiddler rays or banjo sharks are found along the eastern and southern coasts of Australia.

The flattened pectoral fin discs of fiddler rays are shorter and more rounded than that of other guitarfishes. Their tails are slender, with a well-developed caudal fin and two triangular dorsal fins. Their snouts are translucent.

Fiddler rays feed on bottom shellfish, crabs, and worms, which they crush between their jaws.
