Yesterday, fishermen off the coast of Lakes Entrance in Victoria, Australia were left baffled when they caught a 2-meter long eel like creature that looked nothing like anything any man had seen before.
Turns out, this is a rare species of Shark, called the Frilled Shark, which has swimming the oceans since 80 million years. It is one of two species from that period that are still living. While it does look 'terrifying', marine biologists say that usually this species swims deeper than 1500m under the sea level.
What's really interesting about the Frilled Shark is that it has a jawline that was thought to have evolved into what most present day sharks have.
