Cool shark in the news today

This Sofa Shark (Pseudotriakis microdon) was caught off the coast of Scottland.  It’s a rare deep water shark, living in depths of 650 – 6,200 feet! The tend to discover that lots of sharks take deep dives but this one resides pretty deep.  It has been a dream of mine to go on a deep water survey… they find the most bizarre fish!  They do some of those surveys out of FSU.  I’m going to seriously work on getting myself on that boat!

I bet by the picture you can guess how it got its name!This glorious weirdo, known as a false catshark or sofa shark, was found off the coast of Scotland.

Here is the link to the article I read and it’s also where this pic is from…  http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/bizarre-sofa-shark-found-off-scotland/ar-AAf8DPF?ocid=ansmsnnews11
