Why Do Large Creatures From the Deep Always Attack Japan?

Workers from the Japanese Aquarium captured video of deep-sea shark lurking about the shallows of Awashima Port. The species, Chlamydoselachus anguineus or frilled shark, is not unknown from shallow water but rare. The frilled shark as a global distribution as is found from 0-1570m (5151ft). It can reach 2m (6.5ft) in length and feeds on other sharks, squid and bony fish. Currently it is listed by IUCN as Near-Threatened. More here at fishbase.

  1. That is a thrillingly ugly creature. Looks like a shark and a moray made sweet, sweet love and this is the result.

  2. I’m with Erechtheides, but it’s true that atom bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki have evidence in bamboo corals from 750m depth in the Northeast Pacific (Roark et al GRL 2005).
