    Indonesian coelacanth

    The Indonesian coelacanth (Latimeria menadoensis, Indonesian: raja laut) is one of two living species of coelacanth, identifiable by its brown color. It is listed as vulnerable by the IUCN.[1] The other species, L. chalumnae (West Indian Ocean coelacanth) is listed as critically endangered.

    Habitat: Teams of researchers using submersibles have recorded live sightings of the fish in the waters of Manadua Tua and Talise islands in the Sulawesi as well as in the waters of Biak in Papua. These areas share similar steep rocky topography full of caves, which are the habitat of the fish.
    These coelacanths live in deep waters of around 150 metres or more, at a temperature between 14 and 18 degrees Celsius.

    Smalltooth sand tiger

    The smalltooth sand tiger or bumpytail ragged-tooth (Odontaspis ferox) is a species of mackerel shark in the family Odontaspididae, with a patchy but worldwide distribution in tropical and warm temperate waters. They usually inhabit deepwater rocky habitats, though they are occasionally encountered in shallow water, and have been known to return to the same location year after year. This rare species is often mistaken for the much more common grey nurse shark (Carcharias taurus), from which it can be distinguished by its first dorsal fin, which is larger than the second and placed further forward. It grows to at least 4.1 m.

    Distribution and habitat: In the eastern Atlantic Ocean, it is known from the Bay of Biscay south to Morocco, including the Mediterranean Sea, the Azores, and the Canary Islands. In the western Atlantic, it has been reported from off North Carolina and Florida (USA), the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico), and Fernando de Noronha (Brazil). It occurs throughout the Indian Ocean, from South Africa, Madagascar, and Tanzania.

    Clubnose guitarfish

    The clubnose guitarfish, (Glaucostegus thouin) is a vulnerable species of ray in the Rhinobatidae family. It is found from shallow coastal waters to a depth of 60 m (200 ft) in the Indo-Pacific, ranging from India to Southeast Asia, and also in the Red Sea.[1][2] There are also old unconfirmed records from the Mediterranean and Suriname.

    It reaches up to 3 m (9.8 ft) in length, but typically is less than 2.5 m (8.2 ft).It is pale yellowish or brownish with a pale snout. It has an unusual club-like tip of the snout, which separates it from other members of the genus Glaucostegus.

    Round ribbontail ray

    The round ribbontail ray (Taeniura meyeni) is a species of stingray in the family Dasyatidae, found throughout the nearshore waters of the tropical Indo-Pacific, as well as off islands in the eastern Pacific. It is a bottom-dwelling inhabitant of lagoons, estuaries, and reefs, generally at a depth of 20–60 m (66–197 ft). Reaching 1.8 m (5.9 ft) across, this large ray is characterized by a thick, rounded pectoral fin disc covered by small tubercles on top, and a relatively short tail bearing a deep ventral fin fold. In addition, it has a variable but distinctive light and dark mottled pattern on its upper surface, and a black tail.

    Distribution and habitat: The round ribbontail ray has a wide distribution in the Indo-Pacific region: it is found from KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa northward along the East African coast to the Red Sea, including Madagascar and the Mascarenes.

    Bottom-dwelling in nature, the round ribbontail ray is typically found close to shore at a depth of 20–60 m (66–197 ft), though it has been reported anywhere from the surf zone to a depth of 439 m (1,440 ft).[1][4] It favors sand or rubble bottoms in shallow lagoons or near coral and rocky reefs, and may also enter estuaries.
