Scyliorhinus haeckelii is a shark of the order Carcharhiniformes, family Scyliorhinidae (Cat Shark) which includes 15 species.
The etymology of its name comes from the Greek: skylla = a type of shark + rhinos = nose.
It lives in the marine environment, between 40 and 400 meters deep. Its distribution is in the western Atlantic: from the coast of Venezuela to Brazil, up to Argentina.
Its maximum length is about 60 cm for male and 50 cm for the female.
It is believed that this species is associated with coralliform or calcareous algal formations where it lays paired eggs. The embryos feed exclusively on yolk. The contents of his stomach have detected squid beaks and skeletal elements of bony fish.
