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

its an udeveloped horn shark they use the horn to cut there way out of their eggs much like some snakes and lizards do. but they usually fall off shortly after hatching. you can tell its a horn shark by the little spike on the dorsal fins.
