The Daily WTF: Cyclops Sharks Are Real!

It’s a well known fact that sharks are awesomely terrifying. They are dead-eyed, prehistoric, non-stop killing machines, and they are real, y’all. Truth is stranger than fiction!

Unlike sharks, the mighty cyclops is not real (that we know of), but terrifying all the same. I mean, what’s scarier than a hulking monster that wants to kill and eat everything in its path? A hulking monster that wants to kill and eat everything in its path with one creepy eye in the middle of its face.

Put those two things together and what do you get? Cyclops shark! Oh hell no. This rare perversion of nature was recently discovered off the coast of Mexico when a fisherman cut open a pregnant regular shark and found a baby cyclops shark inside. The good news is that no live specimens have yet been found, so it’s not likely that this thing has figured out how to survive outside the womb. Or maybe that’s just what it wants us to think.
