The Goblin Shark :
The goblin shark, Mitsukurina owstoni, is a deep-sea shark,
the sole living species in the family Mitsukurinidae.
The most distinctive characteristic of the goblin shark is the unorthodox shape of its head. It has a long, trowel-shaped,
beak-like rostrum or snout, much longer than other sharks’ snouts.
Some other distinguishing characteristics of the shark are the color of its body,
which is mostly pink, and its long, protrusible jaws.
When the jaws are retracted, the shark resembles a pink grey nurse shark,
Carcharias taurus, with an unusually long nose. Mitsukurina owstoni is found in the deep ocean,
far below where the sun’s light can reach at depths greater than 200 m.
