Fill The Oceans With Concrete: Rare And Very Ugly Frilled Shark Caught In Australia

January 21, 2015


Seen here looking suspiciously like a chestburster, the frilled shark caught by Australian fishermen near Victoria wishes it was still in the water. Hoho, maybe next time you'll think twice before trying to renege on a deal with Ursula!

The species, whose ancestry dates back 80 million years, is known as the 'living fossil'.

"It has 300 teeth over 25 rows, so once you're in that mouth, you're not coming out," [Fisherman Simon] Boag said.

"We couldn't find a fisherman who had ever seen one before," he said.

"It does look 80 million years old. It looks prehistoric, it looks like it's from another time!"

He said local fishermen were left scratching their heads at the sight of the two-metre-long creature, whose head and body resemble an eel, but whose tail is more reminiscent of a shark.

I don't know about you, but if I was a fisherman and caught something like this, I wouldn't be a fisherman anymore. *hauls in frilled shark* Nope, f*** this, the oceans weren't made for people. I knew I should have been an astronaut. "NASA didn't want you." Fine, a fireman. "You failed every physical fitness test." A teacher? "You hate children." I should just live at home and let my parents take care of me.

Keep going for several more pictures of the no thank you.




Thanks to Nicole, who agrees that's definitely a face you'd want to Photoshop out of your family portrait.
