The Goblin Shark

Talia Steffen, Writer

The goblin shark is a rare shark that can thrust its teeth out of its mouth three inches to catch prey and after the prey is caught can return its mouth back to normal.

The goblin shark can grow to be around 12 feet long and 460 pounds and lives on the bottom of the ocean. The goblin shark is regularly slow but with there super power to thrust their teeth out cause “their bottom teeth are attached to ligaments, or bands of skin, tucked into its mouth. When prey is out of reach, the shark extends the elastic tissue out of the mouth to nab the grub. “ A goblin shark’s main course usually is teleost fishes as in rat-tails and dragon fishes.

The goblin shark is an incredible shark that has the power to push its teeth out of its mouth to ensure it catches its prey. The Goblin shark uses this power cause unfortunately their not the fastest shark so they get the extra boost with this super power. Luckily for us the goblin sharks are not fond of humans and mostly leave them alone.
