Although the majority of batoid elasmobranchs, skates and rays, are benthically associated, benthic locomotion has been largely overlooked in this group. [...] Key Result Despite this supplemental use of pectoral fins, the augmented punters failed to exceed the punting capabilities of the true punters. The urobatid and the true punters all punted approximately half their disc length per punt, whereas the dasyatid punted a significantly shorter distance.Expand
