provided by wikipedia EN

The Burmese bamboo shark, Chiloscyllium burmensis, is an extremely rare bamboo shark in the family Hemiscylliidae. The first specimen was caught 1963 off the coast from Rangoon in Burma in a depth of 29 – 33 m. This holotype is an adult male, 57 cm long and kept in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC.[2] Later, three more specimens, two males and one female, were recorded 2018 from the Bangladesh Fisheries Development Corporation Fish Landing Center of Cox’s Bazar. [3]

Features: No color pattern. Dorsal fin has straight rear margins.[4] They are relatively small size and have slender body, blunt snout, and small eyes. [3]

Food: Small bony fish or invertebrates.[4]

Reproduction is presumed to be oviparous (egg laying).
