Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated with sharks. My interest in these remarkable fish has never really waned, leading to my majoring in zoology while at college and my insistence that Shark Week is must-see television. Sharks have evolved over millions of years to become the most efficient fish in the sea, and one can’t help but admire how they’re built perfectly for their roles as predators.
Most of the sharks we see in movies are Great Whites, and every once in awhile, we’ll get some makos (like in Deep Blue Sea). But there are a lot of sharks swimming in the Earth’s oceans that look nothing like the sharks we see on the big screen. I usually post about movies or video games, but some of these sharks look so bizarre that they can only be classified as “unreal.” I hope you enjoy this gallery of the strangest-looking sharks in the world.
