Crocodile shark from our nightmares just washed up on Devon beach (PHOTOS)

Steven Greenfields was out for a walk with his family on Hope Beach in Devon when he stumbled across the find, the first record of the species in the UK, according to Devon Live. Greenfields, an experienced diver, could not identify the species himself and so submitted images of his discovery to the National Marine Aquarium.

“On first inspection of the photos we thought the animal could be a juvenile Porbeagle Shark, which is found in UK waters. However, we identified numerous traits which suggested it was not any shark usually recorded in UK waters,” James Wright from the aquarium said.
