  • The South China cookiecutter shark, Isistius labialis is a species of dogfish shark in the family Dalatiidae, found in the South China Sea at depths down to 520 m. It is named from its feeding style which often creates perfect "cookie-cutter" shaped plugs in the skin of large marine mammals and large sharks. Isistius labialis is a synonym of Cookiecutter shark, Isistius brasiliensis. Reproduction is aplacental viviparity in the same way as great white sharks.
