I came across these pics while on the net.

It's called a Goblin Shark. It was caught in Sydney Australia, in 1983.

It's a known specie, but very rarely seen.

I can see why it spends it time in the deep.

Its always cool to something you have never seen before such as this......It is a ugly little #er though.

Most interesting is that nothing much is known at all about what "The Japanese fishermen who caught the first specimen of Mitsukurina in the "Black Current" off Yokohama called it tenguzame, which means goblin shark."

And here: www.austmus.gov.au...

Definately an interesting catch. We have still yet to find all there is out there.

Here's a close up of it's face. They are supposed to be harmless to people, but I wouldn't want to meet one while swimming!

Yeah, not a big fan of the ocean. I figure why poke my nose were it does not belong? Creatures like this constantly prove that we know nothing about what is down there. And when people say that a (insert mythical sea creature here) is not possible I say look at things like this, if that can exist why not (same mythical sea creature)?

Well, wow..thats what I have to say..thats a amazing. They are currently finding out about deep sea species, such as the giant squid and such. But, one thing, on the bottom picture that you posted (the close up) Is that a horn that it has? Looks like a horn with teeth underneath that with a green eye lol...COOL!
