Goblin Shark

Kieran here,

I am going to share some info about the creepy and very rare Goblin Shark, (Mitsukurina owstoni). Not much is known about this shark but this is what I know. Goblin sharks live in steep slopes, submarine canyons and seamounts throughout the world at depths of 100m. Various body features of the Goblin Shark includes flabby skin and small fins. They mainly base their diet of Teleost fish, cephalopods and crustaceans. Goblin sharks are very rare sharks and only live in extremely deep water, they have only been seen a couple of times and we still have a lot to learn about them. Goblin sharks have a very interesting jaw which they can dislocate and shoot forward to grab their prey and then move it back to it’s normal position.

Bye!

Kieran 🦈
