Fishermen catch terrifying prehistoric shark

In a rare fish catch, a fishing trawler near Lakes Entrance, Victoria has caught a rare prehistoric shark with 300 teeth among their catch.

The terrifying fish meaures up to two metres long and was caught at 700 metres below sea level. It is being opined that the origin of the shark dates back 80 million years and is eel-like in shape. It has 300 teeth over 25 rows, which allows it to swallow its prey whole.

The Daily Mail reports that the dark brown, eel-like looking creature is a frilled shark, also known as the 'living fossil', and was named for its six pairs of frill-like gills along with its dorsal fins, similar to the predatory fish.
