Eco News #32 – The goblin shark

December 13th, 2012

Hi Greenzoners! Spooked already? 😉
Goblin shark

This terrifying by appearance creature here is the goblin shark – very rare species of deep water animal.  They are found in a water deeper than 200m or on the surface,  dragged up by deep sea fishers.
Their characteristic feature is head strangely shaped and retractable jaws. They are not dangerous to humans – their diet consists of squids, crabs and other fish.
Their length range between 2.4 and 3.1 meters, but the biggest individual ever discovered was almost 4 meters long. 🙂
