If you're having trouble sleeping at night, we'd like to apologize because what you're about to see will haunt your dreams:
OMFG, IS THAT SATAN'S PET SNAKE!? Nope, but it keeps getting scarier: the damn thing's real!
That, fellas, is what you call a frilled shark and it was caught by a fisherman named David Guillot off the coast of Southeastern Australia. We don't know about you but this beast makes Jaws look like a cute li'l pup.
Measuring about two meters in length, the frilled shark resembles an eel with a very toothy jaw that can contain two or even three hundred teeth. It's also called a "living fossil" because, according to scientists, the species has been around for 80 million years or even before the T-Rex was still chomping down on other dinos.
Here are a couple more shots of the hellish-looking creature:
A few more things you should know about frilled sharks: they're normally found at depths of about 1,200 meters (which means it's incredibly rare to spot one), and they have flexible jaws that allow them to swallow prey whole with their needle-like teeth preventing the victim from escaping. NYA!
"The head on it was like something out of a horror movie. It was quite horrific looking... It was quite scary actually," says Guillot. We absolutely agree, Mr. Awesome Firsherman!
If your curiosity has overtaken your fear though, here's a short clip about frilled sharks:
