This shark has not been observed while swimming after prey, but it is thought to be a slow-moving benthic predator due to its unique shape that I can't really put into words.
I mean, look at it. What can you say about this animal's shape? Pudgy pudge with fins? Actually, that's not half bad, now that I think about it. Quite fitting, in fact. (It's two dorsal fins help it be distinguished from other Oxynotus species.) However, as some other Oxynotus species, this one lacks an anal fin.
Not much is known about this animal. It's an uncommon to catch one, let alone see many alive and swimming in their environment. It's rarely caught as bycatch of bottom trawls.
However, what is known is that these animals are ovoviviparous, and the sizes of the pups are thought to be around 20-21 cm long.
There is so little information on these animals, they're listed as "Data Deficient" by the IUCN.
