Description Benthic rays occurring in all oceans, from Arctic to Antarctic waters and from shallow coastal shelfs to abyssal regions; rare in tropical shallow waters or near coral reefs; some species enter brackish waters. Disc quadrangular to rhomboidal. Mouth transversed to arched, with numerous teeth. Five pairs of ventral gill slits. Tail very slender, with lateral folds, usually 2 reduced dorsal fins and a reduced caudal fin. Electric organs weak, developed from caudal muscles. Skin prickly in most species, the prickles often in a row along midline of dorsal. Oviparous; eggs in a horny capsule with four long tips. Skates feed on other benthic organisms. Skate wings are considered good eating.  [details]
