Crocodile Shark

An extraordinary find of a small shark with sharp spiny teeth was washed ashore dead after gales at Hope Cove, south Devon, south-east of Plymouth. The discovery on the sand and rock beach by Steven Greenfields, puzzled the experts at first as it was not on the list of sharks ever discovered in British seas before. However, it had some rather distinctive features including a white patch foreword of its long gill slits, and with its distinctive teeth and shape of the caudal fin, there could really be no doubt it was the first ever British record of the Crocodile Shark, Pseudocarcharias kamoharai. This shark is an inhabitant of much warmer tropical seas, oceanic over deep waters to depths of 590 metres, rising to 200 meters or less at night, and in all tropical oceans but not a common species and classified as Near Threatened on the IUCN List. It's nearest natural habitat is the Canary Islands region. It is a puzzle of how it arrived as the sea temperature is thought to be too cold (usually limited to a low of 20°C) for it to have swam all the way.
