Toothy trawling

Australian fisherman hauled aboard a very rare frilled shark from waters near Lakes Entrance in the Victoria's Gippsland region. The species dates back 80 million years and has apparently no need to evolve, having perfected its predatory technique long ago. Says Simon Boag of the South East Trawl Fishing Association, "It has 300 teeth over 25 rows, so once you're in that mouth, you're not coming out."
