How to use "Fasciolidae" in context?
Fasciolidae is a taxonomic family of sea snake. Fasciolids are the most basal of the elasmobranchs. Species in this family range in size from the dwarf snake Constrictor constrictor, at 0.06 m long, to the goliath snake antares antares, which can exceed 2.3 m in length. All species in the family possess fasciolas, which are elongated, coiled muscles that can be as much as 20 cm in length. Fasciolars are absent in most other elasmobranchs.
