Could this mysterious prehistoric dinosaur shark be the creature behind the Nessie mythos? That is the idea of sea serpents even if they are in fresh water.

It certainly qualifies as a 'sea serpent' , and proves that factual experiences underlie the sea serpent mythos.

Coelacanth , and another entry for my cryptozoology files.

Japanese marine park captures rare 'living fossil' shark

A species of shark rarely seen alive because its natural habitat is 600 meters or more under the sea was captured on film by staff at a Japanese marine park this week.

The Awashima Marine Park in Shizuoka, south of Tokyo, was alerted by a fisherman at a nearby port on Sunday that he had spotted an odd-looking eel-like creature with a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth.

Marine park staff caught the 1.6 meter long creature, which they identified as a female frilled shark, sometimes referred to as a "living fossil" because it is a primitive species that has changed little since prehistoric times.

Frilled sharks, which feed on other sharks and sea creatures, are sometimes caught in the nets of trawlers but are rarely seen alive.

Prehistoric Frilled Shark

Frilled sharks can grow to a length of nearly 6.5 feet and eat deep-sea squids and other soft-bodied preys.
