Rare Shark Caught On Film

Female Frilled Shark

This took place at the end of last January but I just found out about it today. A rare species of shark which resembles an eel with a mouthful of needle sharp teeth has been captured and photographed after rising to the surface off the coast of Japan. The creature was identified as a female frilled shark which usually lives 2,000 feet or more under the ocean. Humans can’t tread that deep hence the documentation of the fish has been scarce. Apparently the shark has changed very little since prehistoric times making it a sort of living fossil.
