  Weird Horned Shark

Weird Horned Shark

Uploader comment: Greetings. Here's some photos of a weird, horned shark we pulled up in our net. Didn't notice it till we got back and was emptying the net, it was dead by then. Been fishing a long time and occasionally we snag a baby shark, but in all of my years I have never seen anything like it. Does anybody know what kind of shark it is??? Thank You, Dr. Z

i believe that all baby sharks have that horn temporarily. its used to break out of the egg pouch. i may be wrong, but it looks like a baby to me.

NO. BABY SHARKS AREN'T BORN WITH HORNS. They develope teeth while inside the egg cases. They EAT their way out. And, that looks like a baby dogfish. Although there is a type of shark called a horn shark that has spines... there is nothing like this. I'm guessing the horn was glued on or this is just a clever model. Note the eyes. _
