OK, are you ready for your daily nightmare? A rare 300-toothed frilled shark was recently caught off the coast of Victoria, Australia.
The South East Trawl Fishing Industry Association called it a living fossil. Sky News simply called it a “terrifying deep sea monster.”

According to AZ Central, the rare frilled shark (Chlamydoselachus anguineus) was caught last month in AUstralia. It’s about 6 feet long, has the body of an eel, a tail like a shark, and hundreds of teeth.
The rare frilled shark was caught by David Guillot last month when he was trawling for sea perch.
Guillot said: “The head on it was like something out of a horror movie. It was quite horrific looking. … It was quite scary actually. I’ve been at sea for 30 years and I’ve never seen a shark that looks like that.”
