Husbandry

Haploblepharus fuscus Smith, 1950
Brown shyshark

The brown shyshark or plain happy (Haploblepharus fuscus) is a species of catshark, part of the family Scyliorhinidae. It is endemic to the shallow, coastal waters of South Africa from west of Cape Agulhas to KwaZulu-Natal. This benthic species is usually found over sandy or rocky bottoms. Measuring up to 73 cm (29 in) long, the brown shyshark is stoutly built, with a broad, flattened head and rounded snout. Unlike other shysharks, the brown shyshark has a plain brown color, though some individuals have faint "saddle" markings or light or dark spots.

Found close inshore on the continental shelf, often in shallow, rocky areas. Feeds on lobsters, crabs and small bony fish. Oviparous. Caught by shore anglers
