This Bizarre Pig-Faced Shark Was Just Pulled Out Of The Mediterranean Sea By Italian Naval Officers

The angular roughshark is distinguished by its wide-set eyes and its short, blunt snout, giving it the appearance of a pig.
On August 19, a group of Italian naval officers on the island of Elba came across an unusual fish floating in the water. But when they pulled it to the surface, they realized it was no ordinary specimen but a lifeless, pig-faced shark.
The shark has been identified as an angular roughshark (Oxynotus centrina), and it’s unlike any of its peers. Colloquially known as a “pig fish,” this shark species is distinguished by its large, pink snout and bulbous, wide-set eyes. https://allthatsinteresting.com/angular-roughshark
