Feeding Habits - The smooth dogfish is fairly small for a shark, measuring around 60 inches long with a narrow body. This species, however, is built to eat. Its flat, blunt teeth can bite down on even the hardest of prey, such as crabs and lobster. As a scavenger and opportunistic feeder, the shark also takes advantage of less impressive, yet nutritious, food sources, including mollusks, small shrimp, worms and almost anything edible that may wind up in its mouth.
Cool Fact - Smooth dogfish can change their color from dark to light, to camouflage themselves from predators.
