Average Length – 5ft
The body of a Pacific Angelshark is broad and flattened, their posterior part is more muscular which is more typical of other sharks.
They have extensible jaws that can rapidly snap upward to capture their prey.
Like other Angelsharks, they have long needle-like teeth.
They prefer habitats that are close to the shore, soft, and flat. They can sometimes be found near rocky reefs and kelp forests.
When they find a successful ambush spot, they will sometimes stay there for as long as ten days, just reburying itself after it strikes its prey.
Like other Angelsharks, they are not dangerous to humans unless provoked.
