A shrimper caught this rare Goblin shark in the waters off Key West last month.
Carl Moore of Georgia was shocked when the strange looking shark fell out of his trawling net filled with shrimp, especially since most people never get a chance to see a Goblin shark.
They live one to three thousand feet under the water and feed on live squid and fish.
This is only the second member of the species ever caught in the Gulf of Mexico and the first since 2000, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
