1. Frilled Shark
If you think you know everything about sharks, you might feel betrayed by your knowledge.
Deep below the surface, where few HD cameras ever reached, there is one shark able to update your worst nightmares in the odd sense. The Frilled Shark shows just why scientists are so reluctant in exploring the depths of our oceans.
Take a better look at that mouth. Not as scary as that of a Great White, you might say. While the size is not impressive, the denture structure is hellish. All the 300 teeth are pointed inward, which makes the bite particularly tricky.
The only way out is counterintuitive, as the unfortunate prey needs first to go inside the mouth and then try to pull itself out. That is impossible to achieve in a fight or run situation.
Coming up next is another shark that looks out of this world.
