Think “Jaws” was terrifying?

Well imagine running into the goblin shark, also known as the ‘Alien of the deep’ patrolling the pitch-black depths of the ocean.

Scientists at the Australian Museum got this handsome specimen – It’s a juvenile male, measuring around 4 feet (1.26 meters) long – from a fisherman who caught it off the coast of Eden, a town located between Sydney and Melbourne.

There is a reason the goblin shark is so ugly. The bottom of its long snout is covered in pores. Those lead to the “ampullae of Lorenzini”
