Compagno, W. T. White & Cavanagh, 2010
The Borneo river shark, Glyphis fowlerae, is a shark of the family Carcharhinidae. Its length is up to 78 centimetres (31 in). Reproduction is presumed to be viviparous. Only 13 specimens are known to science collected in 1996. Expeditions in 2010 and 2011 failed to find any and while fishermen recognised the shark, they have not been seen for many years. Other members of the family are common at the mouth of tropical rivers, along with Bull sharks, Speartooth sharks, Irrawaddy river sharks and New Guinea river sharks. They all can travel in both saltwater and freshwatwater.
