Rare shark captured in Japan

Here's a clip of the rare "frilled shark." This speciment was spotted by fisherman in the shallows off Japan's Shizuoka Prefecture. The shark was taken to Awashima Marine Park, where it unfortunately died soon after arrival.

The frilled shark normally lives at pitch-black depths of 2,000 feet or more, hence the rarity of its appearances.
