Rare "Prehistoric" Shark Photographed Alive


A Japanese fisherman was able to photograph a Frill Shark (I had never seen or heard of this species before). Apparently they live in the depths of the ocean and this one may have come to shallow waters because it was sick.  

On the bright side, I do not think this species has to worry about being finned - they live to deep and seem to lack dorsal fins (pectoral ones look small).

That thing is freaky as hell.
Hope all is well.
