Invisible Lantern Shark

Photo of a rare Etmopterus spinax, better known as velvet belly lantern shark. Recent study shows that these rare sharks actually have the ability to create an optical illusion that renders them visually undetectable to predators and prey. The only thing scarier than a shark is a shark you can't even see.
