KOTA KINABALU: Marine researchers are hoping to rediscover a species of rays with long snouts resembling sharks, thought to be extinct, in smaller rivers that feed into Sungai Kinabatangan.

Though the marine creature called sawfish have not been sighted along the nation’s second longest waterway for about 20 years, researchers believe that there could be small populations at its tributaries or at the nearby Sungai Segama.
