Scientists were stunned to find human footprints on an ancient beach at Happisburgh in Norfolk, making them the oldest prints discovered outside of Africa.
Measuring an estimated 18 feet long, the creature roamed the earth more than 200 million years ago, and likely looked very much like a modern day crocodile or alligator.
The frilled shark possesses many of the features found in prehistoric sea predators, and may be the origin of many sea monster myths.
According to a new discovery, the humongous sea monster of legend might not be a myth after all... in fact, it may have totally ruled the oceans in prehistoric times.
This newly-found fossil confirms that modern arachnids are descended from a creepy sea creature that lived half a billion years ago.
While it may look like a rejected H.R. Giger Alien design, the horrifying Goblin Shark actually exists. It's probably no threat to humans... you hope!
