Nobody Had Ever Seen This Prehistoric Shark Alive Until This Video Leaked

This deep sea dweller lives particular between 600 and 1,000 meters below the surface and rarely swims in shallow waters. This female shark was supposedly sick at the time of its capture and it died shortly after being placed in the park’s saltwater pool. Park staff thinks it may have come close to the surface because it was sick, or else it was weakened because it was in shallow waters. When they come up to the surface, it’s usually because they don’t have long to live.

Watch this fascinating creature in the video below! What would you do if you encountered one of these during a trip to the ocean? Let us know in the comments!
