A 300-million-year-old shark, dubbed "Godzilla shark," has been found in the Monzano Mountains east of Albuquerque, New Mexico, paleontologist John-Paul-Hodnett informed Discovery News.

Godzilla Shark was exposed on its right side in a fine-grained limestone. Due to its size, the shark was removed in three sections to be preserved and re-assembled in the paleontology laboratory at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.

It bears about as much resemblance to Godzilla as it does to Kermit the Frog.
