A bizarre deep-sea shark with bulging eyes and an unnerving, human-like smile was recently dragged up from the depths off the coast of Australia. Shark experts are uncertain exactly which species the creepy-looking creature might belong to, adding to the mystery surrounding the unusual specimen.

A deep-sea angler, who goes by the online name Trapman Bermagui, reeled in the mysterious shark from a depth of around 2,130 feet (650 meters) off the coast of New South Wales in Australia. The fisherman later shared a snap of the deep-sea specimen on Sept. 12 on Facebook (opens in new tab). The image shows off the dead shark’s rough sandpaper-like skin, large pointed snout, large bulging eyes and exposed pearly whites.
