Snake-like shark from dinosaur era might scare you out of sea

Off the Algarve coast off Portugal, a group of researchers working on an European Union project have come across a Cretaceous-era frilled shark, one that has miraculously survived for over 80 million years.

Scientists from the Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere caught the rare frilled shark while working a project to 'minimise unwanted catches in commercial fishing, ' according to Sic Nicotia.

We all love oceans but it is quite uncommon to come across prehistoric creatures swimming across the oceans, on the other hand, it was a lucky day for the Portuguese Scientists who caught a shark aboard belonging to the age of dinosaurs from the Algarve cast. In total, the shark has six pairs of gills that have "frilly" edges. It also has a rather unique teeth arrangement, but there's little else known about the shark's biology or ecology.

A frilled shark, a species that is often termed a "living fossil" because of several "primitive" features that have survived for millions of years, has been captured off the coast of Portugal's Algarve region, the country's meteorological and sea institute has announced.

The creature gets its name from the frilled nature of its teeth, which allow it to devour its food.
