When Lochlainn and Mike Kelly went fishing off the southern shore of New South Wales, Australia, the final thing they expected to find was a living dinosaur. Yet, that”s just what they located. Son and the dad managed to nab an uncommon teen goblin shark, occasionally called a shark that was vampire.
People seldom catch Goblin sharks. The species dislikes normally lives close to the ocean floor and sun, about 4,000 feet below the surface.
This kind of specimen was captured only 2,000 feet below the Scientists estimate the shark is all about two or three years of age.
“I wasn”t freaked out; if anything I was quite excited,” said 22-year old Lochlainn who hauled the shark in. “I”ve seen pictures of these before but I”ve never seen one before.”
The rationale the goblin shark may also be called a living dinosaur is as the species hasn’t evolved for the last 125 million years in virtually any important means.
This special shark was four feet in length, although grownup goblin sharks can grow up to 13 feet long.
This goblin shark will sent on to the Australian Museum in Sydney for additional study.

If I pulled this fish upward in the deep and wasn”t expecting it, I believe I ‘d likely die of shock. Great thing the Kellys understood to not freak out.
