A rare goblin shark was recently caught in the Gulf of Mexico. Measuring an astounding 18-feet long, this rare species of shark has only been seen in this region once before. The Florida Keys shrimp fisherman who caught it, Carl Moore, released it back into the ocean after snapping some photos.

Well, I'm happy to hear they released it. I guess there's not a particularly good way to handle them. Hope it survived.
