Distribution Distribution: Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. Jaws of the same length and relatively short. Pectoral fins unusually large and can be used for gliding flights. Moreover, some species have unusually large pelvic fins giving them a four-winged appearance. Caudal fin deeply forked; the upper lobe shorter than the lower. A pair of long, flaplike whiskers in the juveniles of many species. Attains 45 cm maximum length; usually below 30 cm.  [details]
