What is the animal Zanobatus known for?

Zanobatus is a genus of small rays that are known for their heart-shaped body discs, their long tails with two dorsal fins, and their velvety skin covered with small placoid scales.
They live in the coastal waters of the warm East Atlantic Ocean, from Morocco to Angola, and feed on bottom-dwelling invertebrates.
They reproduce by ovoviviparity, giving birth to one to four young at a time.
They are the only genus in the family Zanobatidae, which has an uncertain taxonomic position among the orders of cartilaginous fishes.

Where does the Zanobatus live?

The Zanobatus is a genus of rays that belongs to the family Zanobatidae.
It is the only genus in this family, and it contains two species: Zanobatus schoenleinii and Zanobatus maculatus.
These rays are also known as panrays.
They are found in the warm East Atlantic Ocean, along the coast of Africa, from Morocco to Angola.
The panrays live in shallow waters, up to 100 meters deep, and feed on small bottom-dwelling invertebrates, such as worms, crustaceans, and mollusks.
They are considered vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), due to their limited distribution, low reproductive rate, and habitat degradation.
