Not Quite Jaws...


For my little science aficionados (I understand there are few of you).... Anyways, have you ever seen a shark like this? Doubtful, because frilled sharks are rarely seen fish that usually live thousands of feet beneath the sea and date back to prehistoric times. This so-called “living fossil” was captured after it swam close to the surface in Japan and died in captivity just hours later. While I would like to say the aquarium just killed it- more likely the fish was moving to the surface because it was very sick.
