Some of them are:

What does the Deania look like?

The Deania is a shark of mystery
It dwells in the depths of the sea
Its snout is long and slender
Its teeth are small and tender

It has two spiny fins on its back
But no anal fin to balance its track
Its caudal fin has a notch so deep
It helps it swim and hunt and sleep

The Deania comes in different kinds
Some are smooth and some have spines
Some are brown and some are gray
Some are rare and some are prey

The Deania is a shark of wonder
It makes me curious and ponder
What secrets does it hide in the dark?
The Deania is a lovely shark
