Goblin Shark attack

This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.

A rare Goblin Shark was caught recently by a shrimping crew off the coast of Florida, it has brought the beastly looking creature to the forefront. This strange creature can reportedly live at depths of more than 4,265 below the surface. This rare catch was released by the shrimping crew shortly after it's capture.

According to Theepochtimes.com  "Carl Moore, one of the shrimpers, said that  he was trawling for royal red shrimp south of the Marquesas Keys April 19 when he netted the 15-foot goblin shark."

Some Goblin Shark Facts -

* Teeth - The teeth are very long and narrow with single cusps in both jaws. There are 26 in the upper jaw and 24 in the lower jaw.

* Body -  The body is uniformly pale white or pinkish, this is caused by blood vessels just under the translucent skin.

* Other Names - Elfin Shark, Requin Lutin and many others.

* Location - The deep-water goblin shark is thought to be widely distributed. Specimens have been seen in the Atlantic off the coast of Guyana, Surinam, French Guyana, France, Madeira, Senegal, Portugal, Gulf of Guinea, and South Africa. It has also been reported in the western pacific off Japan, Australia and New Zealand. In the Indian Ocean it is found in South Africa and Mozambique. It was recently recorded in the United States near San Clemente Island off the coast of California as well as in the northern Gulf of Mexico south of Pascagoula, Mississippi. Few specimens have ever been caught making it one of the rarest species of sharks.

Just by watching the animated picture at the top of the page, it reminds me of the movie Alien with Sigourney Weaver, where the alien creature had the extra set of teeth and mouth inside of it's mouth.

This odd shark is pretty creepy but fascinating all at the same time.
I can only image what kind of "Monster" tales came from the first sightings of this creature.

Choctaw Bass

No, it's not bigfoot but any time a new species of any type is confirmed it gives all of us bigfoot believers hope.

Scientists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife have confirmed a new species of black bass in the southeastern United States.

The Choctaw Bass, as it is being called, is very difficult to distinguish from the spotted bass. This is why the new species has remained undiscovered until recently.

Scientist searched for the same DNA profile among bass in nearby rivers to help confirm the new species.

Cool indeed.

A foot long Skull with 700 razor sharp teeth, does that qualify as a Monster?
This monster was found in Oxfordshire and it is the biggest pike ever found in Britain.
The skull was 9 inches wide.

The grisly fish carcass was found in the undergrowth next to the River Cherwell by farmer Peter Money.

Yes it is real, a 2 headed shark!

Experts say the baby beast, found in the Gulf of Mexico, was a single shark rather than conjoined twins.
Boffins at Michigan State University carried out a study on the strange creature.

"This is certainly one of those interesting and rarely detected phenomena,” said Michael Wagner, the university’s assistant professor of fisheries and wildlife.
“It’s good that we have this documented as part of the world’s natural history.”
Wagner and his team used MRIs to reveal the shark had two distinct heads, hearts and stomachs, with the remainder of the body joining together at the back to form a single tail.

Pretty Cool but weird freak of nature.
