Shark Dating Back to 800 Million Years Found Swimming Offcoast of Portugal

The prehistoric shark, called the frilled shark, is one of the oldest - nearly present since 80 million years - and reportedly the creepiest one still thriving under the ocean waters. It also has a rather unique teeth arrangement, but there's little else known about the shark's biology or ecology.

Scientists have captured an extraordinary prehistoric animal that still lurks the depths of the oceans and is as elusive as it is scary.

Dr Asim appears at Sattar's doorstep to deliver Zardari's 'special message'
Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Dr Asim Hussain met Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) chief Dr Farooq Sattar on Sunday.

European Union scientists working off the coast of Portugal caught the toothy beast in a trawler net while carrying out research to "minimise unwanted catches in commercial fishing". Researchers from the Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere were working on a project to "minimise unwanted catches in commercial fishing" when they stumbled upon this shark.

As per reports, the Institute said that the fish measured 1.5 metes in length was caught from the waters off the resort of Portimao at a depth of 700 meters.

Rafa Benitez wants to land Fernando Torres in January
The report suggests Torres' representatives are eyeing up a temporary switch to either Newcastle or Southampton. And Diego Costa will be eligible for game-time once the club's transfer ban is lifted in January.

Scientists from Portugal's Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) have dubbed the catch a "living fossil", after using techniques to identify the animal that indicates the species dates back nearly 80 million years.

Scientists believe it resides off the coast of Australia, Japan and New Zealand. Frilled sharks are known for having extra gills, big mouths, eyes on the side of their heads and also spineless back. fins. They are sometimes caught accidently in fishing nets but they do not live long outside their natural habitat. The largest the frilled shark can grow is up to six feet long that is the size of a tall man.

The reporter dubbed it a "monster of the deep", and it is true that Samuel Garman, the first scientist to study the frilled shark, thought its snake-like movements may have inspired sailors' stories of sea serpents.
