In the ocean’s twilight zone, which lies between 600 and 800 meters below the surface, scientists have recently discovered a unique species of shark. It has eyes like emerald domes that look up to the sky through its transparent head.
The rotting shark was found in an abandoned aquarium. It had probably been in an airtight case for a while and had started to decay.
A Zombie Shark Found in an Abandoned Aquarium
A video of a zombie shark found inside an abandoned aquarium has shocked people around the world. It was captured by a French woman and YouTuber named Juj’ Urbex.
The urban explorer went on a trip to Spain and filmed her eerie discovery of the decaying fish inside the old facility. The footage has been shared on TikTok and YouTube, and it has been viewed almost 5 million times so far.
In the video, the shark is seen sitting in a tank with its thick skin wrinkled and distorted by decay. It also sits with its mouth open displaying rows of sharp teeth, and its eyes are clouded over.
According to the explorer, the shark had likely been put on display when it was still alive and treated with chemicals to preserve it. However, when the glass case broke, exposing it to air, its rotting body started to slowly decompose.
Other animal remains were also discovered in the aquarium, including an octopus and squid. They were found in jars and have now dried.
A Zombie Shark Found in a Submersible
When four friends set out on a romantic beach vacation, they have no idea that sharks whose bite turns humans into zombies are lurking offshore.
The film opens with a baby dinoshark swimming away from a broken chunk of Arctic glacier that calved due to global warming, and three years later, the creature is a ferocious predatory adult that kills tourists and locals offshore from Puerto Vallarta.
But a new breed of ravenous sharks — created by a mad scientist whose technology went awry and unleashed a mutant sea monster — are cracking the frozen ocean floor, eating their way up and devouring any who fall through.
Florida scientists have tagged one of these prehistoric creatures from a submersible, a historic first that took three expeditions, more than 2,000 pounds of bait, custom-built spear guns and over a dozen attempts before they finally made it. The shark is a goblin shark (Osedax osedax), which has small eyes, a long, flat snout and jagged teeth that project from the lower jaw.
A Zombie Shark Found in a Boat
A terrifying video has been circulating the internet showing an urban explorer visiting an abandoned aquarium. The footage shows a mummified shark that looks like a zombie along with other dead and decaying sea creatures.
The video, shared by the urban explorer Juju_Urbex on YouTube and Tik Tok, has racked up thousands of views. It was recorded at an unnamed aquarium in Spain, which was closed and abandoned a few years ago.
When the former workers left the location, the formaldehyde tank preserving the shark was broken and the air started decomposing it. The zombified shark was eventually spotted by an urban explorer who uploaded the video to social media.
Lemon sharks have a special defensive skill called tonic immobility, which allows them to “play dead” underwater. When they are flipped onto their backs, they go limp and sometimes even become disoriented, causing them to play dead until they feel safe again. It is a natural defense mechanism that has been studied by scientists for years.
A Zombie Shark Found in a Submarine
Intrepid urban explorer Juliette recently entered an abandoned aquarium in Spain, where she found rotting squid littering the floor and a zombie shark lurking in an old tank. She shared the footage online, which eerie glimpse into an underwater nightmare.
The footage shows Juliette clambering into the aquarium’s dim corridors. She can be seen tumbling over a squid corpse, before chancing upon a long-dead shark that has been preserved inside the tank.
According to researchers, lemon sharks have developed a terrifying defense against predators: they play dead. When a lemon shark is flipped over, it will appear lifeless and then re-orient itself until it feels safe again.
This is called tonic immobility, and it has been studied for years. Scientists believe that sharks may have developed this trick as a way to protect their eyes, which can be damaged by feeding on crab pots or other types of fishing gear. It’s also possible that they could feel disoriented when laying on their backs, so they play dead until they’re sure their eyes are still functioning properly.
