Chlamydoselachus anguineus

This video shows rare footage of a frilled shark in shallow water. The frilled shark (Chlamydoselachus anguineus) is a primitive shark species, sometimes called a “living fossil” because it resembles extinct species of sharks. Frilled sharks are usually found at depths of around 2,000 feet, but this one somehow found its way into shallow water off the coast of Japan, where it was captured and taken to a nearby marine park. In poor condition, the shark died soon after this video was shot.


When I was a kid, I wanted to be a marine biologist. No, this is not a Seinfeld reference. I was obsessed with sharks and whales, and used to imagine epic shark vs. whale undersea battles, not dissimilar to the epic battles in Return of the King. Of course, the sharks were evil and the whales were good.

I imagine the Chlamydoselachus anguineus to be like, the king of the sharks or something. It looks wise.
