What does the sawfish use its saw for?

5 Feet Long Fish

The sawfish uses its saw like snout mainly to attack other fish to catch its food.

A sawfish looks like a big shark with a long, flat, saw like snout.

The “saw” of an adult sawfish is often 5 feet long, and is armed with sharp feet.  The sawfish uses its saw like snout mainly to catch its prey.

To get food, it attacks whole schools of fish, slashing left and right with its fearful weapon as it goes.  It then feasts upon the victims at its leisure.

The sawfish also uses its toothy snout to defend itself against strong enemies.

And the saw can also be used as a shovel for digging up shellfish and other food in the muddy sea bottom.

Because of its wicked snout, the sawfish is one of the most dangerous of all sea fish.  Even very young sawfish are dangerous.

Another interesting fish, also named after its long beak, is the swordfish.  The swordfish used its sword in much the same manner as the sawfish uses it saw. – Dick Rogers
