A group of fishermen from Australia just made history when they caught a prehistoric shark. Commonly known as a frilled shark, its origin dates back to 80 million years which is only one of two species still alive. It is also believed that it’s the very first time humans have seen such creature alive according to Simon Boag, chief executive of South East Trawl Fishing Association (SETFA).
The two-meter-long shark was pulled out from water near Lakes Entrance in Victoria and was caught at 700 meters below sea level. Eel-like in shape, this frilled shark has 300 teeth over 25 rows which can devour its prey whole.
It has needle-shaped teeth which can grow up to two meters long.
Fishermen were both puzzled and shocked upon discovering the creature. They don’t even know what they caught at first.
Its common name comes from the frilly or fringed appearance of its six pairs of gill slits.
“Good for dentists, but it is a freaky thing. I don’t think you would want to show it to little children before they went to bed,” says Boag. The frilled shark may capture prey by bending its body and lunging forward like a snake.
Frilled sharks are usually caught as deep as 1,570 meters but it is already uncommon to find them below 1,200 meters.
Dark brown in color and eel-like body, a frilled shark is also known as a “living fossil.”

The specimen was offered to the CSIRO but was not taken in. It is understood the shark has been sold off, the ABC reported.
That’s one freaky sea creature indeed. Share your comments below.
Dashboard Cameras Capture Terrifying Moment Taiwanese Airplane Crashed On a Bridge
Life is precious. You only live once. Cherish it!
A dashboard camera of a Taiwanese driver captured the terrifying moment of TransAsia flight GE235 crashing into a river near the country's capital city of Taipei. The chilling footage shows the plane, a turboprop ATR-72, rolling sharply to the left as it descends over an elevated bridge. TransAsia Airways has confirmed in a Facebook post that the plane carried 58 people — five crew members and 53 passengers. At least 13 people died in the crash.

The incident was also confirmed by Taiwan's Aviation Safety Council who issued a statement that there had been a plane crash at around 10:45 AM local time....
This Newborn Baby was Flushed Down The Toilet. How the Fire-fighters Save Him? Unbelievable!
What kind of mother would do such cruel thing to her own baby. Thanks to the Firefighters for saving this angel.
One of the most horrible stories that I always hate to hear is about depriving a newly born baby of his rights to live a wonderful life. In our present society where almost everything is being accepted no matter how immoral and wrongful it may be, the notion of life is construed to something dispensable. People use facts and science to justify the apparent truth that they want to believe in. And none of the moral concerns are being considered. Hence, from time to time, babies are aborted, abandoned and sometimes left behind by the parents because they just feel they are not ready to have one yet or whatever absurd reasons they have. I always pray for those babies who are aborted and I hope that those who are abandoned and left behind can still be saved.
Just like what happened in this video. A baby was flushed down in the toilet and found out to be stuck in the pipe of the drainage. What kind of mother would do such cruel thing to her own baby. That baby has the right to live! Fortunately, firefighters were immediately informed about the incident. And they did not waste any time to pull out the baby from the pipe because they knew every second counts.
Watch the Incredible Rescue of the Firefighters!
Say YES to Life! Please share so that others can watch it!...
What They Discovered in a 2,000 year old Shipwreck Could Prove Atlantis is REAL!
Whoa! The legend might be real after all…
One well-known story of Plato, a great ancient Greek philosopher, is the destruction of the ancient civilization of Atlantis. The story dates back over 2,300 years ago, but still it remains famous and continuously being narrated. Why? James Romm, a professor of classics at Bard College in Annandale, New York asserted that the tale of the lost city of Atlantis is a story, though uncertain of its truthfulness, captures the imagination in which he further added that it has various fascinating components that people would surely enjoy to imagine. Many have been fascinated by the legend. It has been believed that Atlantis was rich in gold, silver and other precious metals and has once become a great naval power.
Map of Atlantis drawn by 17th century scholar Athanasius Kircher.
Many historians and archeologists have painstakingly searched for clues and evidence of the existence of Atlantis but to no avail. Even scholars and scientist have tried to prove that Atlantis is real. Most of them failed to prove its existence. The story of Atlantis has still remained a myth or just a product of one’s great imagination....
