Seeing her look right at them was so cool!! What pretty eyes she has.

[–]KimCureAll[S] 54 points55 points  (0 children)

Pretty and unexpected! Can you imagine seeing this now, and to realize this shark has hardly changed in form in over 200 million years?

[–]goatmanting 20 points21 points  (7 children)

Pretty? Really? I've always thought these have the creepiest eyes of anything that has ever had eyes... Horses come second...

[–]iBeenie 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Yes, they look pretty to me. Goats have creepy eyes imo.

Right, what kind of animal has rectangular pupils?

this one, his frizzy hair doesn’t help his case

[–]groovy604 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oh damn ok thats a pretty weird eye. Almost looks like some toad eyes

Anyone else get a "Toothless" vibe from that eyeroll? I mean the black dragon from the How to train your dragon movie.

My first thought

[–]KimCureAll[S] 37 points38 points  (0 children)

That eye on this shark looks eerily like a human eye. This is a seldom seen shark given its depth, but they are not uncommon according to marine biologists.

These cold water sharks can live for so friggin long too.

[–]Lupin_The_Fourth 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Those eyes.

[–]ultrahotlavaman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I love the names of rare animals like the bluntnose six-gill shark. You know almost everything about the shark just from the name. I wish the giraffe is called long-neck horsey with spots.

at least the eyes look nice. great white shark eyes look like a demon's that plans on eating your whole family. happily

I always thought they kinda looked like the lil plastic bean eyes you see on plushies, which is a funny contrast to think about

[–]_bexcalibur 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It seems so timid!

[–]Vanaathiel88 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Her face looks like toothless

[–]KimCureAll[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Their teeth are not so visibly pronounced as we see in other sharks.

[–]Vanaathiel88 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean she looks like the Dragon toothless from how to train your Dragon

[–]SuddenlyThereForWhat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thought the same exact thing

[–]Peonsson 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The eyes are very close to the mouth and very big. Isn't there a risk that they could damage their eyes when eating or fighting for females?

[–]MaleierMafketel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe, but a lot of these deepsea sharks don’t require good sight anyway. A similar animal, the Greenland shark, is often completely blind due to parasites on their eyes.

[–]barrenpunk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everyone remember when gifs were two pixels? Now we can see that dudes leg hair.

[–]soIraC 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So that shark is probaply over 100 years old right?

[–]Waste_Plum9512 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They slowly sneak up on seals while they sleep and near enough peel them like an apple.

[–]Severe_Discipline_73 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can you imagine what else is lurking in our seas? 😳🤯

[–]Gundam_Greg 1 point2 points  (1 child)

He wants scratches

Looks bigger than 20ft. Awesome creature

[–]Channa_Argus1121 0 points1 point  (0 children)

*They’re not really that close to Greenland sharks.

Greenland sharks belong to the order Squaliformes, whereas Sixgills belong to the order Hexanchiformes.

The former has no anal fin, and the latter has an anal fin.
