This was all over the news yesterday - the discovery of this freaky "prehistoric" shark in Japan. Again, in Japan - where they just found the giant squid, and now this giant bizarre shark....What's next, a giant firebreathing lizard, a giant moth or a three headed dragon? :D

You always hear of a new species of beetle in the Amazon or a new sparrow in the Australian Outback..but to miss an entire friggin shark, especially one that looks like that? By the way, did they only find the one?
noooooooooooo they knew they existed and from the article its just extremely rare to catch them on film at all

You ever see those fish that got washed up on shore in Thailand after the Tsunami? Crazy unknown species....weird looking. One looked like it had a human face.

Supposedly they weren't washed up from the Tsunami after reading many reports.

Rarely seen 'living fossil' shark caught off Tokyo

Another shark story:
TOKYO (AFP) - A goblin shark -- a rarely seen species often called a "living fossil" -- was caught alive in Tokyo Bay but died after being put on display, an aquarium said.

The grey, long-nosed shark was caught in fishermen's nets around 150 to 200 metres (500 to 650 feet) deep. It was discovered by officials of the Tokyo Sea Life Park when they took a boat with local fishermen on January 25.

"We were able to bring it to the aquarium alive and show it to the public," said an official at the park.

But the shark died on the morning of January 27.

"Dead goblin sharks are caught from time to time, but it is rarely seen alive. We were able to document the way the shark swims. After it died, we dissected the specimen for further studies," he said.

The shark was about 1.3 metres long.

Resembling pre-historic sharks, goblin sharks live on deep sea bottoms. Little is known about their lives.
