Goblin Shark

Rare Goblin Shark caught off the coast of Brazil in 2011.

Some of you may have read about or seen photos of this scary looking shark. It looks like something taken out of a Hollywood movie. This is the kind of thing nightmares are made out of. Although it may seem too scary to be real, it’s as real as the Narwhal. Although they are not in the endangered species list, some people believe they are rarely seen because they are low in numbers, but don’t know for sure. They live well below where sunlight reaches. They have a very unique way of attacking their prey. When they approach it their jaw goes out similar to how a human can stick out its tongue. Then with a sucking motion they draw they prey into their mouth where very powerful teeth are waiting to consume it.

Check out this rare video of the shark in action.
