Frilled Shark Video

This eel-shaped shark was spotted a few days ago off the coast of Shizuoka prefecture. Prior to reading about the Frilled Shark (Chlamydoselachus anguineus) I had no idea that sharks other than the Six-gilled Shark had six gills.

  1. i know, the damn thing was creepy looking. i would have pissed in my pants if i saw something like that coming towards me. hahah

  2. I’m glad you posted about the frilled shark, since I saw a glimpse of the weird eel-like body, and unmistakable shark face on the news…but missed the segment about what this creature was. Now I’m a happy camper!
