The Saw Fish, p.239.

[Three Hundred Animals Contents]

   WHAT can be the use of the curious apparatus with which the snout or beak of this fish is provided? It looks like an offensive piece of armour, yet we do not see what occasion the animal can have for it.

This fish is found in the Atlantic ocean, his back is ash-coloured and his belly white.
