Fisherman off the coast of Victoria, Australia have discovered something that looks like it’s from the set of the new Jurassic Park film. Except it isn’t. It’s actually legit.
David Guillot hauled this insane prehistoric creature that they’re now calling a ‘frilled shark’ and it has been described as a ‘living fossil’ dating back over 80 million years. Jesus christ.
The beast has 25 rows of razor sharp teeth and an eel-like body. NOPE. I’m glad these things are incredibly, incredibly rare.
Simon Boag from the South East Trawl Fishing Association said it was the first time a frilled shark has been sighted in living local memory:
We couldn’t find a fisherman who had ever seen one before. It does look 80 million years old. It looks prehistoric, it looks like it’s from another time!
