NAUTILUS LIVE 2014 | Found while exploring the Kick ’em Jenny submarine volcano near Grenada, the team spotted a Chimaera, or “ghost shark” who appeared to have parasites. An ancient deep water fish, their closest living relative is the shark. E/V Nautilus is exploring the ocean studying biology, geology, archeology, and more.

Critter’s creepy because the parasites are eating it up alive. What an awful way to go.
