Weird and rare sharks
South East Asia
Isle of Man
Orkney & Shetlands
These weird ones are not strictly speaking sharks, but are as close as you can get to the real thing and so weird they demand our attention.
Here’s what several million years of evolution can do to you. Fossils show that the frilled shark has been around in one form or another for 150 million years.
A cookiecutter shark may be one of the smallest of sharks and have a cartoon-style name, but this tiny predator is far from fun and cuddly.
The goblin shark is not likely to win any beauty contests – in fact Hollywood would probably go out of its way to sign it up for a subject of a Frankenstein-style horror movie.
Reaching a maximum length of 7m, the Greenland shark is a fish of extremes. Not only is it big, but it’s also deep – very deep.
One of the great things about sharks is their names – they are wonderfully self-explanatory.
