Habitat and Ecology
Reported size ranges from 35.2 to 93 cm total length (TL). Size and age at maturity is unknown. Smallest reported adult male is 75 cm TL; smallest reported adult female is 78 cm TL (Compagno in preparation a). All other aspects of biology unknown.
Reproduction in Centrophorus is ovoviviparous, and fecundity is low. C. uyato and C. moluccensis (which superficially resemble C. isodon) only have 1 to 2 embryos per litter, compared to 5 to 7 per litter in C. squamosus and C. lusitanicus respectively.
Diet includes a wide range of teleosts, other dogfishes, cephalopods, shrimps and occasionally salps.
