Attached File  shark.jpg   36.12K   40 downloads The Japanese fishermen who caught the first specimen of Mitsukurina in the "Black Current" off Yokohama called it tenguzame, which means "goblin shark." This has become its common name, although very few people besides ichthyologists and shark-book authors ever get a chance to use it. The shark is extremely rare, found only in deep water off Japan, South Africa, perhaps off Portugal, and, in one strange instance, in the Indian Ocean, cable malfunction necessitated the raising of the cable, and an awl-like shark's tooth was found embedded in the wire covering. The cable had been at 750 fathoms, and the tooth belonged to a goblin shark.


the rest here..

Me too. I want it to creep out my roommate. I wonder what the protruberance on it's head it for? Maybe an extended area for sensing electromagnetic fields like other sharks do? I would think that because it lives so far down, it would need all the help it could get to locate prey.

I thought everyone knew about Goblin sharks... I've always read about them in shark literature and such, they never seemed mysterious enough for people not to know about them. Then again, most people probably don't care much at all about sharks... so... ;P

I like them D;

Me, too. I've known about them for a while now, but hey, I know about a bunch of different kinds of cetaceans that a lot of people haven't heard of when I mention them. It's all about what you're exposed to and what you like to read about.
