Fisherman Nabs Cyclops Shark

LOOK: Fisherman Nabs Cyclops Shark

I've got my eye on you, cyclops shark. But you appear to be the real thing—or so say experts who have examined the one-eyed creature cut from the belly of a pregnant shark hooked out of the Gulf of California on a sport fishing expedition. "This is extremely rare," said shark expert Felipe Galvan Magana. "As far as I know, less than 50 examples of an abnormality like this have been recorded." The sharklet likely would not have survived outside of the womb, scientists tell MSNBC.
