The shark is the pygmy (dwarf)

The shark is the pygmy (dwarf) is the smallest representative of the family. Its length reaches 20-25 cm, painted black. She lives in the warm waters of two oceans – Indian and Pacific.

Once was the case that night when the sailors saw this fish at a distance of 15 metres.

The frilled shark

The frilled shark is one of the most ancient and rare fish. Some call it a “living fossil” and “the king of the underwater world”. She lives mainly in the warm waters of the Atlantic ocean at a depth of 1570 meters. Externally, the frilled shark resembles an eel or a sea snake. She reaches up to two meters in length and has a brown color. Tail fin of one of the blade. The jaws of this fish are located at the end of the snout.

One of the last recorded cases occurred in 2007, near Japan. It was found by a fisherman on the water surface. But, unfortunately, she was sick and died a few hours later.

 

Pelagic largemouth shark

One of the rarest species of sharks is pelagic largemouth. It is the only species in its family. First saw her in 1976, near the island of Oahu. This fish was caught by the American research vessel. Having large sizes, a shark for a long time coexisted with humans incognito. It is possible, the locals took it for a sea monster, which formed the basis of some legends.

In 2004, on the shore near the city of Ichihara (Japan) found a female with a length of 5.6 meters. It was the largest representative of its species, which failed to see. By January 2015 was revealed only 60 individuals, which makes it not only rare, but also poorly understood shark.

Ballarat lives up to its name. This fish has a disproportionately large head and a huge mouth. The back is dark-grey colour, and the abdominal portion of the light. Despite the impressive size, a shark feeds on zooplankton – small aquatic animals. Habitat bollerot is difficult to determine, but it is most often found near the coast of California and Japan. By day, he descends to a depth of 120-160 metres, and at night rises up to 12 meters to the water surface.

Because pelagic largemouth shark is a planktivorous predator, the threat to humans is not. Unfortunately, some sharks are becoming rare and are in the red book.
