The effects of embryo stage and cell number on the composition of mouse aggregation chimaeras
Reported catches of sharks, rays and chimaeras
peaked in 2003 and have been dominated by rays for the last 40 years.
Researchers assessed the conservation status of 1,041 shark, ray and chimaera
species, which are all so-called "cartilaginous fish," meaning they have skeletons made of cartilage rather than bone.
Sharks, rays, and chimaeras
tend to grow slowly and produce few young, leaving them particularly vulnerable to overfishing," says Sonja Fordham, IUCN SSG Deputy Chair and president of Shark Advocates International.

After Richard Lawrence's failed attempt to assassinate Jackson, the Washington Globe blamed Clay and Calhoun for provoking the assault, describing Lawrence as "infatuated with the chimaeras
which have troubled the brains of the disappointed orators who have depicted the President as a Caesar who ought to have a Brutus.
Supplementing the 2004 first volume, The biology of sharks and their relatives, this fine collection of studies describes the places where sharks, rays, skates, and chimaeras
live and how they adapt to change and stress.
They are all shapes and sizes, part of a fish family called 'chondrichthyans', which includes skates, rays and chimaeras

describes "any composite animal or plant in which the different cell populations are derived from more than one fertilized egg, or union of more than two gametes"); Albert de la Chapelle et al.
In the sixth part of La Nouvelle Heloise, Julie, by then living on sublimated terms with her former lover, writes to him that "the country of chimaeras
is the only one in this world that is worthy of habitation, and such is the nothingness (neant) of human things that, apart from the Being who exists by Himself, nothing is beautiful except that which is not.
Pristis microdon belongs to the wideranging family of cartilaginous fishes called elasmobranchs (from the Greek words elasmos, meaning beaten metal and bragkhia, meaning gills) which includes sharks, rays and chimaeras
or ghost sharks.
