Fascinating animal. Thanks for sharing the story. I saw a small specimen in a jar but I couldn't see those rows of teeth. The fisherman was smart to throw him back instead of messing with that mouth.

Is that picture in The Blaze article the actual photo of the shark?
I was reading the NOAA link in the article and it said "Living goblin sharks are a pinkish white color with bluish fins. Specimens fade and become brownish when preserved in alcohol". The picture shows a brown shark...just thinking
