First to film a frilled shark

Last updated: November 16, 2017 at 1:44 am

H. Scott Meister filmed a frilled shark at a depth of 873 m (2,866 ft) on the Blake Plateau (Georgia, USA) aboard the deep submersible Johnson-Sea-Link II on August 26, 2004. A frilled shark was filmed by a diver for the first time three years later. The frill shark is believed to have the longest vertebrate gestation period.
