6 Gill Shark:Rare FindIt`s not every day you happen to be walking along the beach and discover a Six Gill Shark. Normally you find these critters at depths up to 1500` and greater. The Six Gills we have encountered were typically shy, rare, and amazing animals to see in person. These ancient sharks have spiked and serrated teeth that rip and tear the meat off of whatever dead animal drifts down to the cold dark depths. You can only imagine this guys surprise when a 9 foot beast washed up on his local beach this week: "Poulsbo resident Andy Woodford was combing the beach for shells when he made the unusual find. The shark is an immature sixgill female, found with no signs of trauma or obvious cause of death." Here`s the whole story
