The Galapagos Bullhead shark is a nocturnal species of shark that are found in inshore sandy and rocky areas as well as Coral reefs. As the Genus name suggests the shark has two types of teeth, small sharp curved teeth at the front for grabbing prey and flat side teeth that are good for cracking and grinding hard shells. Its relatively large pectoral fins allow it to crawl along the seabed and the two dorsal fins have a sharp spine that helps deter predators. The eggs they lay are surrounded by a tough, leathery spiral shaped form, which allows them to be wedged between rocks to protect them from predators. When born they are around 17cm long and only reach sexual maturity when they are three times that length.
