Goblin Shark

Series of elevation illustrations of the Goblin Shark

The Goblin Shark (Mitsukurina Owstoni) is a species of shark that is often referred to as a living fossil as their ancestry can be traced back extensively. They have sharp tiny teeth that are arranged in multiple rows and a long and flat snout that resembles a sword blade. Goblin Sharks have a unique protruding jaw that extends rapidly to catch prey.

Goblin sharks live in the deep waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian ocean. They generally eat fish, cephalopods, and crustaceans near the sea floor. Not a lot is known about these sharks since they are mostly solitary and are rarely seen.
