Goblin Shark Pictures - A Rarely Seeen Deep Sea Shark

Top Right Solid Corner

The goblin shark, Mitsukurina owstoni, feed on a variety of organisms that live in deep waters, including  deep-sea squid, crab and fish. Goblin sharks hunt by sensing the presence of prey with electro-sensitive organs in the rostrum, or snout, due to the absence of light in the deep waters where it swims. Once a shark finds its prey, it suddenly protrudes its jaws, while using a tongue-like muscle to suck the victim into its sharp front teeth. No pregnant goblin shark has been caught but they are assumed to be ovoviviparous,  where their eggs mature and hatch inside the mother's body and the shark ejects live young.
