Because of their strange aspect, this holocephalan fish was named Chimaera monstrosa. Some data on C. monstrosa and other chimeroids are summarized in Dean, , Dean, Observations on the morphology of the brain were made by Kuhlenbeck and Niimi (), Smeets et al. (), and Yopak et al. ().

The rabbit fish is known for its characteristically large head, and small tapering body. With large eyes, nostrils, and tooth plates, the head gives them a rabbit-like appearance, hence the nickname “Rabbit fish”.

Cholinergic components in brain of Chimaera monstrosa oblongata. The distribution pattern of the ratfish is another example of this. Bycatch species in these areas include bluemouth (Helicolenus actylopterus), greater forkbeard (Phycis blennoides), argentine (Argentina silus), deepwater cardinal fish (Epigonus telescopus), and chimaerids, of which Chimaera monstrosa is the most important (ICES ). Rihan et al. () have also reported this species as a bycatch from. Bathydemersal to benthopelagic generally between and m depth. Found in the upper continental slope. Usually found in deeper waters in southern latitudes, while making a summer inshore migration up to m in the northern areas. La chimère commune, rat de mer ou chimère monstrueuse (Chimaera monstrosa) est une espèce de poisson cartilagineux vivant dans les abysses, appartenant à la famille des chimaéridés.

Sharks and skates (Chondrichthyes: Elasmobranchii) have a glial blood-brain barrier, while all other vertebrates examined so far have an endothelial barrier. For comparative reasons it is desirable to examine the blood-brain barrier in species from the other subclass of cartilaginous fish, the holocephalans.
