Fishermen in Victoria, Australia, didn’t know what to think when they reeled in a prehistoric-looking creature from the water. They noticed its head and body looked like it belonged to an eel, but the tail looked like a shark’s. They unknowingly captured a very rare frilled shark, sometimes referred to as the “living fossil,” according to the Telegraph.
