This is the goblin shark, a bizarre and rarely spotted creature found in water deeper than 200m throughout the world.  Very little is known about their life history or reproduction, as encounters with them in their native habitat are incredibly rare. Most specimens are dragged up by deep sea fishers.  They are famous for their strangely shaped heads - they have snouts much longer than any other shark, and retractable jaws.

The eel is one meter long and comes in all oceans at depths up to 7000 meters in front.
