A “living fossil” this shark was deemed. With an eel-snake like body this creature is close to a sea-serpent. And its sharp teeth lurking in the depths of the ocean add no ease of the mind.

The looks of this shark are a mystic beauty. It’s name comes from the six gills on each every side of the neck. Many rows of white teeth would scare away any one, and its deepish brown may not help your fear but is it really well to judge by the cover?

This shark is well suited to swallow food larger than itself. It mostly eats squid, other sharks and such. Don’t worry there are no attacks on humans that we know of.

This shark doesn’t have interactions with humans as much as with deep fishnets. It does damage to the net and is seen as nothing much except as a pain.

But is it really. This is a magnificent creature. Should we really wipe out a creature just because we don’t like it. Maybe there is more to it than meets the eyes. There is so much more to learn.

This shark is close to extinction. It’s beauty is hidden to some, but some of us it’s there clear as daylight. Living in the deep where we can not see it, keeping its truths from us. Maybe one day we will know more but until then it remains a mysterious “living-fossil.”
