Terrifying Alien-Like Frilled Shark Captured [PHOTOS\VIDEO], A rarely seen hideous part-eel, part-shark hybrid known as a frilled shark was captured off the coast of southeastern Australia last month.

The species is considered a "living fossil," as its ancestry dates back 80 million years.

According to reports, The shark was caught by a fishing trawler in waters near Lakes Entrance in the Gippsland region of the state of Victoria.

David Guillot, captain of the Western Alliance, told Fairfax Radio he didn't quite know what to make of the three-foot-long fish that the Australian Broadcast Corporation said was "deeply unpleasant to look at."

The monster is so rare that no one in southeastern Victoria can remember seeing or catching the animal in the past decades. Go here for more including additional photos and video.
