Thomas Harris, eat your heart out

This is a frilled shark.

SMH/Reuters

It is, say the news reports of a recent sighting and catch of one of these creatures, rarely seen. This is because it lives in the deepest darkest depths of the deepest darkest bits of the deep dark ocean.

Half-shark half-eel, the frilled shark is a cannibalistic bottom-feeder that eats other sharks.

It has evolved very little since prehistoric times.

"Rarely seen", eh? These people clearly don't spend a lot of time in the blogosphere.

I love animals that eat their own kind. Like the Woma python (Australian Native!) which eats other poisonous snakes.

Take care, Audrey.

Hell yes -- don't draw their fire, either to you or to me. I've got enough problems at the moment with my stalker.

Sorry, I should have pointed out (as corrected by the husband) that the Woma python is not itself poisonous (thus the name python) and is apparently quite cuddly.
