Rare shark caught in gulf

  • Shrimpers have discovered a rare creature in the Gulf of Mexico, as per the Houston Chronicle. The creature is reportedly more common in Japan but has been spotted for the second time in this region. 

    "This is great news," an expert said. Goblin sharks have "fleshy pink skin, nail-like teeth that protrude from monstrous jaws and oddly long, flat snout- look like the quintessential horrors of the deep."

    The fishermen weren't aware of what it was but took its photos before releasing it back into the water. One of them mentioned that he's "one of only 10 people who've seen one of those alive."
