Mexican Horn Shark
Size: Up to 2.5 feet Habitat/Range: Eastern Pacific Ocean from Mexico to Colombia
The Mexican horn shark is a species of bullhead shark that can typically be found along the eastern Pacific coast from Mexico to Colombia. It can be recognized by a short, blunt head with ridges over its eyes, two high dorsal fins with large spines, and a brown or gray coloration with many small dark spots. This small, slow-moving species typically measures around 3 feet, and its typical diet consists of hard-shelled mollusks and crustaceans. It will also feed on a wide variety of other invertebrates and small bony fishes.
