The Goblin Shark (Mitsukurina Owstoni) is one of the creepier fish out there. It has a long, prominent snout covered with special sensing organs that help it to sense electric fields in deep, dark water.
The Goblin Shark has only been encountered a few times and very little is known about it. They are slow moving deep sea sharks that live at depths of 1200m/4000ft in seas around the world.
The Goblin Shark was the first found off the eastern coast of Japan in 1898. They reside and feed near the bottom off the ocean, making them a rare sighting. The creature is said to pose little threat to humans as it appears to be non-aggressive.
