Of the total, , t were named species of shark and , t were classified as 'elasmobranchs' but presumably consisting mostly of sharks, as skates and rays are generally reported separately.

      The electric rays are a group of rays, flattened cartilaginous fish with enlarged pectoral are the order Torpediniformes.. They can produce an electric discharge, ranging from as little as 8 volts up to volts depending on species. There are 69 species in four subfamilies.. These rays have battery-like electric organs on both sides of their heads, which can make a powerful Class: Chondrichthyes. Elasmobranchii (/ɪˌlæzməˈbræŋkiaɪ/) is a subclass of Chondrichthyes or cartilaginous fish, including the sharks (superorder Selachii) and the rays, skates, and sawfish (superorder Batoidea). Members of this subclass are characterised by having five to seven pairs of gill clefts opening individually to the exterior, Class: Chondrichthyes.

      To be honest, even scientists do not have the answer for that question. But there is many hypothesis proposed by expert: Those jumps could help rays to get rid of parasites and remoras (also called suckerfish, fish that use suction cup to stick to bigger animals) that made them suffer.; By doing big leaps, school of rays may communicate with isolated individual trying to indicate . I would recommend this book to anyone planning on birding in Taiwan. In addition, I would also highly recommend Wu Sen-Hsiong's "A field guide to the birds of Taiwan" (ISBN ), which is jointly published by the Taiwan Wild Bird Information Centre & Wild Bird Society of /5(2).

In the last few years, estimates of the patterns and timing of the evolution of the pelagic, durophagous stingrays (Myliobatidae) have improved through new comparative data from morphology, the fossil record, and DNA sequences.

These recent studies are here reviewed and a conservative summary of myliobatid diversification and origins is by: A preliminary investigation of the feeding ecology of skates (Batoidea: Rajidae) off the west coast of southern Africa.

11, pp. Batoidea is a lineage of cartilaginous fishes, including rays, skates and their relatives, and are distinguished by dorsoventrally flattened bodies and enlarged pectoral fins that are contiguous with the head. These wing-like fins are the main apparatus for batoid (ray) propulsion, termed rajiform swimming.Cited by: 5.

Rays, as well as skates and sawfish (Batoidea), are a superorder of generally flat-bodied cartilaginous fishes, containing more than described species in thirteen families.

Cartilaginous fishes are jawed fish with paired fins, paired nostrils, scales, two-chambered hearts and skeletons made of cartilage rather than bone.
