The Goblin Shark Will Give You Nightmares

We’re closing in on the end of the beloved Discovery Channel staple, Shark Week. It’s a time when households all across this great land gather in front of their television sets and marvel and the beauty and ferociousness of the mighty shark.

But every so often, we see something different. Something not so beautiful. Something downright horrifying. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Goblin Shark. As if the sight of a gigantic mouth full of sharp teeth streaking towards you in the dark of the ocean wouldn’t be terrifying enough, this thing has a mouth that protrudes at the last second which kind of makes it look like a shark within a shark. But our description can’t do this thing nearly the justice it deserves. Check out the video for yourself.
