In fact, unless it was an underwater knife fight (anywhere from 200-1,600 m under) they would be kind of useless because they'd be dead.
I mean, maybe a little shark burn here and there but other than that? Eh.
Doesn’t mean they aren’t impressive, though. They’ve got a pretty wide range, being spotted all over the eastern Atlantic (i.e. Spain, Scotland, Portugal, Senegal) and the southwest Pacific (New Zealand, yo). But, they are rare, seldom being spotted cruising along continental slopes.
“Weapon of war” is a great way to describe their jaws, though, because those weapons can help dismember any large prey this little shark feels like launching itself at. For such a small shark, it’s got a pretty wide mouth (I can hear my dad making a snickering comment about it sounding a lot like me).
As stated before, these sharks are rare and therefore not much is known about them. They may be ovoviviparous. Their IUCN status is undetermined because of how little data is stored away about these cool sharks, but what we do know about them is proving them to be pretty fantastic.
If you were to bring a shark to a fight, would it be this one?
