Fishermen in Australia were stunned last month when they hauled up a shark so strange-looking that it's been called a "living fossil"--300 teeth and all (scroll down for photos).
The super-rare frilled shark (Chlamydoselachus anguineus) showed up in the nets of a trawler operating near in waters off Victoria, Australia, The Telegraph reported.
The catch came as quite a surprise.
"We couldn't find a fisherman who had ever seen one before," Simon Boag, CEO of the South East Trawl Fishing Association, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "It does look 80 million years old. It looks prehistoric, it looks like it's from another time!"
