Frilled Sharks live between 600 to 1000 meters under water, and because their habitat is deeper than humans can venture, they are rarely seen alive. Although it's not uncommon for dead frilled Sharks to end up in a fisherman's net, the sighting of a live frilled Shark is not common -- and capturing it on film is extremely rare.

However, in 2007, a live frilled Shark was found swimming in a port near the Awashima Marine Park in Shizuoka, south of Tokyo. Unfortunately, the frilled shark was in poor condition when the marine park officials found the shark, and the shark died shortly after being moved to a seawater pool in the park. Officials told Reuters, "We think it may have come close to the surface because it was sick, or else it was weakened because it was in shallow waters."


Although these sharks may look terrifying, they are no threat to humans. They feed off of other sharks and sea creatures. Often referred to as a "living fossil" frilled sharks are a primitive species -- earning their name due to the little changes they've made since prehistoric times.
