    I bought this in China. Does anyone have any ideas what type of shark? I originally thought either carpet/bamboo shark (from Asia), horn shark (not from Asia), spiny dogfish (not from Asia), but I am having trouble finding photos of any of those that have both stripes (not spots) and spines on the fins.

    Looks like its Heterodontus Zebra, A type of Horn (or sometimes called Bullhead) shark. I guess they have a relatively large range from the western pacific, Japan, to Australia.

    That's it! "Heterodontus Zebra" photos look just like it. Thanks.
