Why Deep Sea Sharks Appear so Mysterious. Sharks have ruled the deep sea for 450 million years. A time during which sharks have adapted and diversified into an array of weird and wonderful species. Many, like the well-known Great White Shark, have adapted to life in the open ocean, as apex predators at the top of the food chain. But the deeper you go into the gaping void of the deep sea, the more peculiar and otherworldly they become. Lets take a look at these fascinating, yet often misunderstood inhabitants of the oceans.

From the deep sea goblin shark and the sixgill, to the elusive Greenland shark and frilled shark, we'll take a look at why deep sea sharks appear so peculiar.
