Just to make it absolutely and completely clear, the False Catshark is a kind of shark. It's usually found at depths of around 200 to 1,500 metres (660-4,900 ft) and you can't go far wrong if you call it "flabby". It reaches some 3 metres (10 ft) in length and has a massive liver and soft muscles, fins and skin. All this helps them maintain buoyancy with minimal effort, so it seems that they really don't like to move around too much. I can appreciate that, but I'd prefer if you didn't call me flabby.
One interesting fact is that the female produces a huge number of eggs, one was found to have 20,000 in one ovary. These are used as food for their developing young as they get older. This nutrition allows them to grow bigger. It seems to work, too - the mother eventually gives birth to 2 pups who are already 1.2 to 1.5 metres (4 to 5 feet) long. They are then well prepared to float about at depth, not doing much. Good times!
