Says “Hi!” in a friendly manner: Fish discovered off Australia.picture: facebook

This find takes your paranoia of scary underwater creatures to a new level.

Fisherman Trapman Bermagui is currently stunning the web with a photo of a shark he spotted off the coast of Australia. He fished the animal with the black and blue bulging eyes and an eerie smile from a depth of 650 meters below the surface of the water.

Meanwhile, under his post, the excited community is puzzling over what species the shark belongs to.

Dean Grubbs, associate researcher at Florida State University’s Coastal and Marine Laboratory, told Newsweek that the unusual catch could be a roughskin dogfish. “As part of my deep-sea research, we have already caught a few of them in the Gulf of Mexico and the Bahamas. Ours come from a depth of 740 to 1160 meters, a little deeper than this report,” says the researcher.

Christopher Lowe, a professor at the California State University Long Beach Shark Laboratory, disagrees. “Looks to me like a deep-sea kitefin shark known in the waters off Australia,” arynews quotes the professor as saying.

So. Until the identity of the shark is finally clarified, we are happy to see some nice pictures of other extraordinary sea creatures.

So now: deep-sea fun!
