Anatomy: This shark grows to 4 feet (1.2 m). It has a blunt head, and above each eye is a large knob. There is a small spiracle behind and below each eye; they are used for respiration. This shark has black stripes that give it its name. There are 2 large dorsal fins (each with a spine).

Reproduction: This shark is oviparous (it lays eggs); the female produces large, screw-like egg cases.

Classification: Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Chordata, Class Chondrichthyes, Order Heterodontiformes, Familiy Heterodontidae (Bullhead and Horn sharks), Genus Heterodontus, Species H. zebra (it was named by Gray in 1831).
