The news is a bit old but I don't think a lot of people have heard about the goblin shark. They have been caught off of Japan and New Zealand and are considered incredibly rare. The most interesting thing about them is their retractable jaw that seemingly shoots out of their mouth cavity to catch fish. Not much is known about them
Video:http://www.newscientist.com/blog/environment/2008/08/goblin-shark-caught-on-video.html?DCMP=ILC-arttsrhcol&nsref=specrt13_pic

So why did they evolve a retractable jaw. Would it be more or less useful to the species compared to other sharks? Do you think it's cool or freaky?
