That's no shrimp!

[quote=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2619301/Thats-no-shrimp-Florida-shrimp-fishermen-accidentally-net-second-prehistoric-goblin-shark-thats-18-FEET-LONG-pink-pointy-teeth.html]The goblin shark is known to live in the deep waters of Japan and a Gulf sighting is so rare that its the first in over 10 years
Scientists don't even know how big or old goblin sharks become
The shark is pink/ red in color because in the deep ocean red appears black and makes the shark invisible to predators and prey
The shark has a jaw that snaps open like a Venus fly trap

"a jaw that snaps open like a Venus fly trap"
I don't know how they can survive with that disability.
I mean a jaw that takes several hours to open....................

Re: That's no shrimp!

Those night cleaners are no use !,    Angry
They spend all night reading their secret stash of PRAWN  Shocked
with one hand on the cleaning wipes, and the other clamped like a venus fly trap grasping a writhing little worm  Crazy

Re: That's no shrimp!

there's a bad sci-fi movie about them .....
its what originally prompted me to look them up to see if they were real, I can say I was rather astonished to discover that they were and a common fish off the coast of Japan....
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
