Goblin Sharks

Next to the newly discovered Vampire Flying Frog most creatures pale in comparison. Enter the Goblin Shark. I probably don’t need to say much more once you watch this video except that I can’t believe it took me this long to learn about this beautiful and eerie demon of the deep. It joins the ranks with the Vampire Squid from Hell as coolest and creepiest creatures. (Vampire squids are the ultimate Halloween animalia, as they practice something called pumpkining!)

The Goblin Shark  can be found in the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and even the Atlantic but it is most common (in its rarity) off the coast of Japan. It is a deep ocean animal, preferring to lurk far from light and the meddling menaces of humankind. I think I am in love…
