Hey, it's still alive today- I bet all the other sharks (or deep sea fish) bully it! I heard the angler fish and deep sea dragons can be quite mean if you don't quite fit in  Silly

Maybe that's why it was found so close to the sea surface- it was trying to commit suicide  Silly

Quoting Rineanna (Reply 4):
When???



Quoting Article:

"We think it may have come to the surface because it was sick, or else it was weakened because it was in shallow waters," a park official told the Reuters news service. But the truth may never be known, since the "living fossil" died hours after it was caught.

I don't know if it was turned into sushi though Big grin

I've noticed that when people take rare animals out of the water they seem to die quickly. If it's really that rare and they can't study it without taking it from the water, then leave it alone.  Yeah sure

Interesting looking creature.  Smile

Really bad and sad ! Most regrettable ! It would have been as interesting as the recently discovered giant-crocodile (about 3 times the size of a decent Nile-Crocodile).

A typical shark's "revolver" jaws. Teeth continously grow from the back and rotate forward as the old ones in front ear down. Almost all sharks have similar teeth.
