Fisherman Net Goblin Shark Off Florida Coast

Shrimpers fishing in the Gulf of Mexico accidentally netted a prehistoric looking goblin shark that is the rarest of all sharks ever to be seen by human eyes. The goblin shark nabbed off Key West, Florida which was 18-feet-long, pink, and has a long snout to conceal it pointy teeth from prey is the second ever of its kind to be seen in the Gulf. The goblin shark is known to live in the deep waters of Japan and a Gulf sighting is so rare that its the first in over 10 years. Instead of keeping the shark to do research, Moore decided to snap a quick photo of the fish with his cell phone then release it back into the water.
