From the Depths

This is an incredible story. An ancient species of shark was seen off the coast of Japan. Normally it resides at depths of at least 600M. This one was clearly sick, as it died shortly after being transferred by scientists. Take a look:

You can see video of the shark from Reuters here and National Geographic has more photos here. It looks like something out of a Science Fiction film. I recommend you check out the video.
