Call me a nature geek, but isn’t it so fascinating when we discover something new in the world?! This gal isn’t new but it’s never been seen like this. Here is the YouTube link to the frilled shark captured in Japan. (Chlamydoselachus anguineus)
I’ve never heard of this creature because I’m not a Japanese fisherman. Recently, I was looking up info on the goblin shark to find that it doesn’t look so menacingly crazy until its jaws protrude wildly from it’s mouth. Weird. What other weird things haven’t we seen?
How many sea monster stories are accurate descriptions of real, really bizarre, deep sea critters dying on the surface? So many mysteries left in the sea. Because of the internet, I get to learn about all these awesome discoveries and even see them in motion. Neat. Do I sound all gushing and awestruck? I am because it just goes to show how exciting science and nature is in a world that still holds gems for us to find.
