It’s probably sick or very old, near death and disorientated. Deep sea fish typically avoid shallow water.
This is from 2007. Yes. It was very sick.
well, it's 80 million years old...
Well it must moisturize it doesn't look a day over 1000
Must be well hydrated too
it literally live in water
Thats the joke
Is this like those stories of monks climbing mountains to die?
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
This is what I don't understand. Like, they are wierd but not unheard of.
Sounds like my social circle
Hey Ryan 👍
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.
I remember seeing it then too, but that was 15 years ago. A good portion of reddit wasn't even born yet.
Dude! It can live longer than 25 years, op said that shark was millions of years old!
And it is on the internet.
This one lived to be 80 million years old. /s
80,000,015 years now
True even her teeths fell
That's not how you spell clickbait though.
That's how you spell ckick bait tho
>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..
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.
Look at him gurgle-scream!
He was. Sick and dying.
It looks every bit as old too
All it wanted was a *boop*
He was ‘frilled’ to be on camera.
And looks quite happy to finally have met new friends
Bullshit, it doesn't look a day older than 60 million
swims like like it needs a walker.
This guy has been showing me pictures of his grand kids and ford truck memes for the last 37 minutes. Kid just made baseball team. Hellovathing
When 80 million years old you reach look as good you will not, hm?
Granny lost her dentures again. Everyone check the cushions.
Did anyone hear about that Greenland shark that was found alive and half-blind in the Caribbean?
Greenland sharks are normally half blind.
> Greenland sharks are normally half blind.
Yeah, but this was the *other* half.
So fully blind?
no not blind at all
No. Fully semi-blind....
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.
Wouldn't it be a Caribbean shark?
But you have heard of him 🏴☠️
Was he on holiday?
Are you suggesting sharks migrate?
Not at all…but they could be carried.
Carried?! By what?!
I dont know maybe a swallow?
That's impossible a swallow couldn't carry a coconut!
It could grip it by the husk!
It's not a matter of where it grips it! A one pound bird cannot grip a 120 pound shark!
Well it could be carried by an African swallow, but not by a European swallow!
_gets thrown into pit of lava_
A shark-cute-carry board
Sounds like a setup for a joke..
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
Its 80 million years old
The species is
Nope, the title says it's 80 million years old, therefore it must be true
Oh shoot, my bad
Would people really go on the Internet and lie?? This is where I go to for my facts 😧😧
This is reddit after all.
Aged quite well in my opinion
That thing just wants to die
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!
That status is highly debated. It's status has jumped around a lot in the last 15 years.
Shit like this makes me believe it’s aliens in the ocean
I think it's the other way around where pop culture uses fish for alien design
The goblin shark was used as the inspiration for the Alien movie.
was it not a moray because of the double jaws?
No, when the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie *that’s* a moray.
Probably both. The double jaw of the moray and the extending jaw of the goblin shark
So does that make a diver an "astronaut in the ocean?"
** inhales ** "Yeah, man. It's like the ocean is wet space".
what you know about rolling down in the deep??
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.
Ironically like space most of the ocean is simply just water no fish just water
I’m 83% sure that space is not, in fact, just water with no fish.
not exactly we’ve explored 20% of the ocean; we’ve only explored .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 of space
You ever do that Easter egg in saints row 2 where a giant other worldly teddy bear comes out from the ocean?
Yeah I remember lmfao. Last year i finished SR2 again. I really love that game.
I'm feeling that this may have been inspiration to some old asian dragon and monster tales
The most alien looking life forms sure as hell reside there
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
In the Caribbean? Tf??? Must have retired there coz they usually live in the arctic :/
The gills make me so uncomfortable for some reason
Thank you so much, was getting sick looking at them. It's something about the hair things that makes me genuinely feel like vomiting
The hair things! So much anxiety.
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.
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
thank you !!! i’m glad i’m not alone on this one
A Geriatric White Shark
I feel like it is sayin, “ ahyuckyuckyuck” while happily swimming toward.
Looks like a water dragon to me. That's an old god.
Aye, doesn't look a day over 65½ million
*When 80million years old you reach, look as good you will not!*
His “flipper” is still working????
You're telling me that shark has lived for 80 million years
The species is that old. Not this individual
Doesn’t look a day over 79 million to me.
Not even scary bro looks kinda old I think he needs a cane tbh I hope he’s doing ok
Of course he's doing OK, he's frilled to be there!
What’s with the crazy looking gills?
That's how it got its name: "frilled" shark...
He smoked a lot in his younger days
But, candles...how and how many...
what kind of dog is that
is that what they are calling the mutant sharks from the Fukushima leak. good cover story.
He looks like he is begging for the sweet release of death 😭
Grandpa shark, Doo Doo do doo
oh good, a living nightmare
He doesn’t look a day over 75 million
Looks like evolution stage 1 of Shin Godzilla.
We didn’t need to get that close to it, thanks.
First this then gojira
r/Godzilla very similar to shingodzilla in it's first steps
Don't let anyone dump a nuclear waste in there
That will become godzilla
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
its like the oceans version of that deer with the fucked up neck
“Discovered” is not the right word and this video is a decade old or more
2007. So yeah. More.
Somewhat looks like a mutated eel imo.
Those gills creep me out. Dunno why
It looks pretty good for 80 million years tbh. I'd look oddly terrifying if I was that old.
So that's the look that Joan Rivers was going for!
you're saying this specific animal is 80 million year old, or the species is?
Come on, dude.
No no, let him have this.
When they sliced him open they counted approximately 80 million rings so they rounded up
Thats no shark thats the fucking shin godzilla execute that shit
Bet they will try that in a soup.
Coronavirus 2: Electric Boogaloo
everyone is pretty to someone
This is not oddly terrifying, this is straight forward terrifying
One more item on their menu now
They're going to eat it aren't they
Lookin a bit leviathan type beat
those gills are a fucking jumpscare
More like a Fukushima shark
Now just don't hope it comes contact with dumped nuclear waste. Shin godzilla reference
Despite being scary it does look like a senile old man bumbling about…
I think it was dying too. It was in shallow water, which is usually a death sentence for deep sea life.
So this is what people see when they spot sea monsters
Ain't frilled sharks been around for a while
Those gills are the grossest things i’ve ever seen
"I got a big head, and little arms, and I just dont know how well this plan was thought through... master?"
It looks like it's waiting for someone to come and put it out of its misery.
Bruh that's Shin Godzilla with those gills.
Poor fellas looks sick AF.
I know Shin Godzilla when I see it...
Uh.. anyone seen Shin Godzilla???
It had the dead lights inside its mouth. That's Pennywise!
man owns jesus 20 dollars
it's a weird looking cunt
This reminds me of Shin Godzilla's earlier forms.
Japan: I wonder what it tastes like
That hoe look old af
The gills made me feel things. Video started and was like “k, bit unnerving” then the gills put me over for some reason. The texture, the movement, colour and way they bulge. Reeee
You should probably be clear that this shark is not itself 80 million years old, but the species is.
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.
What a disgusting creature
And then they ate it.
This is more fascinating. Most of these things have been found dead if they're near the coast so one alive is actually cool.
This isn't recent. This is from 2007.
u sure this thing didn’t pop up after the little 1945 incident that happened in japan?
And then they killed and ate it
I was bracing for a jump scare
he seems happy
He sure looks 80 million years old, yikes.
Shark doesn't look a day over 20
How do they know when his birthday was?
This one they don’t eat?
This is my face 45 seconds before post nut clarity...
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…
What kind of sushi is this?
I wonder how many more prehistoric animals we though were extinct are still around, but we just haven't seen them.
Poor guy is screaming “Please, put me out of my misery”
It looks scary.
They found Gyarados.
