Man catches rare goblin shark off the coast of Key West

Posted: Updated:

A fisherman made quite the catch in the Gulf of Mexico.

Carl Moore was reeling in a net full of shrimp off the coast of Key West, when he noticed he also snagged a shark. He didn't know what it was at the time, but he noticed it has some mean teeth.

Moore later discovered it was a rare goblin shark. It is estimated that only 10 of them have ever been seen alive.

Moore released the shark back into the water. Since then, he has been flooded by questions from scientists and others trying to learn more about it.
