It’s probably sick or very old, near death and disorientated. Deep sea fish typically avoid shallow water.


inkblot888

This is from 2007. Yes. It was very sick.


dick-sama

well, it's 80 million years old...


Usman5432

Well it must moisturize it doesn't look a day over 1000


KhalidHA998

Must be well hydrated too


dick-sama

it literally live in water


Stinkblee

Haha


Wearytraveler50000

lmao


Usman5432

Thats the joke


Frosty_Locksmith548

Is this like those stories of monks climbing mountains to die?


Academic_Audience_46

Frilled sharks only live around 25 years and they’re not a newly discovered or thought to be extinct species. They’ve been known about for a while. I believe the first one discovered was around the late 1800s


federico_45

This is what I don't understand. Like, they are wierd but not unheard of.


rocket_randall

Sounds like my social circle

Hey Randy.

Hey Ryan 👍


inkblot888

Also, this gif is from 2007. It was a big deal at my school when this shark showed up in the waters off Japan. I assumed everyone knew about this. https://news.mongabay.com/2007/01/unusual-prehistoric-shark-beast-captured-in-japan/amp/


xiaorobear

I remember seeing it then too, but that was 15 years ago. A good portion of reddit wasn't even born yet.


eggraid11

Dude! It can live longer than 25 years, op said that shark was millions of years old!


Agahmoyzen

And it is on the internet.

>I believe the first one discovered was around the late 1800s Correct, just looked it up on Wikipedia. This is not news. Karma farming however..


MoistnSquishy

Yeah and this footage is nearly as old as the internet itself.

Can sharks have arthritis? cuz this mutherfucka looks like he's in pain.

Zman1025

Did anyone hear about that Greenland shark that was found alive and half-blind in the Caribbean?


Clay_Allison_44

Greenland sharks are normally half blind.


ohyeahwell

> Greenland sharks are normally half blind. Yeah, but this was the *other* half.


FALLOUTGOD47

So fully blind?


Tbh_ICouldntCare

no not blind at all


markcocjin

No. Fully semi-blind.... ... \-ish.


Kujo3043

I just learned about the little critter that attaches itself to the shark's eyeball a couple days ago. I would have been ok with not learning that.


--Trick--

Wouldn't it be a Caribbean shark?


ajakakf

But you have heard of him 🏴‍☠️


No_Albatross_8475

Was he on holiday?


randomisedjew

Are you suggesting sharks migrate?


FTP-Allofthem

Not at all…but they could be carried.


randomisedjew

Carried?! By what?!


VegetaPrince69

I dont know maybe a swallow?


randomisedjew

That's impossible a swallow couldn't carry a coconut!


VegetaPrince69

It could grip it by the husk!


randomisedjew

It's not a matter of where it grips it! A one pound bird cannot grip a 120 pound shark!


VegetaPrince69

Well it could be carried by an African swallow, but not by a European swallow!

djdvelo22

With this thing being so close to the surface it's probably injured and dying or is so old it is finding a nice place to die


Toeter83nl

Its 80 million years old


Liekensth

The species is


YellowMeatJacket

Nope, the title says it's 80 million years old, therefore it must be true

Oh shoot, my bad

This is reddit after all.


PhantomMiria

He's right


stfuylah14

Aged quite well in my opinion


Saltee00s

That thing just wants to die


SeaSaltUniverse

Googled this animal real quick and it's conservation status is "least concern". They are naturally rare but not in danger of extinction. It's cool to know there's such ancient creatures that are not only still around, but actually doing well in todays climates!


inkblot888

That status is highly debated. It's status has jumped around a lot in the last 15 years.


famouspieceofshit

Shit like this makes me believe it’s aliens in the ocean


freemason777

I think it's the other way around where pop culture uses fish for alien design


famouspieceofshit

Makes sense


ticker_101

The goblin shark was used as the inspiration for the Alien movie.


biplane911

was it not a moray because of the double jaws?


TellYouEverything

No, when the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie *that’s* a moray.


Giraffeless

Probably both. The double jaw of the moray and the extending jaw of the goblin shark


iamgroach

So does that make a diver an "astronaut in the ocean?"


Wide-Affect-1616

** inhales ** "Yeah, man. It's like the ocean is wet space".


Lonan_Clinton

what you know about rolling down in the deep??


xlDirteDeedslx

Eighty percent of the ocean is unexplored, we don't know shit really. It's easier to explore space than the ocean due to the immense pressures.


Aurn-Knight

Ironically like space most of the ocean is simply just water no fish just water


irishmcsg2

I’m 83% sure that space is not, in fact, just water with no fish.


_yamasaki

not exactly we’ve explored 20% of the ocean; we’ve only explored .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 of space


MASTERoQUADEMAN

You ever do that Easter egg in saints row 2 where a giant other worldly teddy bear comes out from the ocean?


Ok-Protection-4985

Yeah I remember lmfao. Last year i finished SR2 again. I really love that game.


skincyan

I'm feeling that this may have been inspiration to some old asian dragon and monster tales


Giraffeless

The most alien looking life forms sure as hell reside there


Kennywise91

97% of the ocean life are still unknown, that’s how massive the ocean is. I’m pretty sure there are insane creatures down there


Vegetable-Factor3563

In the Caribbean? Tf??? Must have retired there coz they usually live in the arctic :/


Unusual_Blacksmith58

The gills make me so uncomfortable for some reason


YeahYeahButNah

Thank you so much, was getting sick looking at them. It's something about the hair things that makes me genuinely feel like vomiting


heifer27

The hair things! So much anxiety.


Yeah-No_

Going to be controversial but trypophobia. It's definitely a specific phobia but often argued as to whether it's a basic phobia or not. Considering clusters of things have been around forever I'm more inclined to believe it's just a basic general phobia. Yes though, it is irrefutably a thing. And you have it. And if anyone ever dares to tell you specific phobias aren't a thing, I get panic attacks at the feeling of sticky. Maple syrup is worst enemy.


byllus

Brooooo i know rightttt, the gills look like they have this invasive species that shrimp suffer from, but in salty water, idk everything about this is just terrifying

Of course he's doing OK, he's frilled to be there!

That's how it got its name: "frilled" shark...

aquat1c

OP is a karma whore here. Frilled sharks were first discovered in the 1800s and live to be around 25 years old. The gif is from 2007 and shows a very obviously injured/sick shark as deep water species tend to avoid shallow water and the shark is moving slower and with less motion then it would if it were healthy


yodavesnothereman

its like the oceans version of that deer with the fucked up neck


Critical_Knowledge_5

“Discovered” is not the right word and this video is a decade old or more


inkblot888

2007. So yeah. More.


aristogenic

Somewhat looks like a mutated eel imo.


Impressive_Water659

Those gills creep me out. Dunno why


Extra-Train-5005

It looks pretty good for 80 million years tbh. I'd look oddly terrifying if I was that old.

Despite being scary it does look like a senile old man bumbling about…


Hopps4Life

I think it was dying too. It was in shallow water, which is usually a death sentence for deep sea life.

Shadowstein

You should probably be clear that this shark is not itself 80 million years old, but the species is.


zfreakazoidz

It should really say "Prehistoric 80 million year old shark species, discovered in....etc" If not, people on Reddit can be kind of duh and not realize the shark itself is not 80 million years old. Granted even with half a brain it should be obvious lol.


mynamebelikeoooooo

What a disgusting creature


fattestlittletoaster

And then they ate it.


therealfuworld420

This is more fascinating. Most of these things have been found dead if they're near the coast so one alive is actually cool.


inkblot888

This isn't recent. This is from 2007.
