Strange visitors

I was quite impressed by the frilled shark, which somehow found itself in shallow waters near Japan. It's a shame it died, but interesting to see it.

This youtube link shows a report on it and video of it swimming. It looks quite ungainly, but perhaps that is to do with it being at the wrong pressure for its own comfort/health and possibly being unwell to start with (to have got itself so far out of its normal habitat).

I like this picture of it, more flattering. :D
