Cyclops shark puzzles scientists

Copyright © Pisces, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico



This bizarre-looking creature is a Bull shark foetus, removed from the body of its captured mother recently off La Paz, Mexico, in the Sea of Cortez.


It appears to have just a single eye in the centre of its head, rather like a cyclops.

The image was shown to two shark experts in California, who were skeptical at first, suggesting it might be a hoax.

Shark expert Felipe Galvan, who has seen this shark, told Pisces Sportfishing that he had tried unsuccessfully to buy it from the commercial fisherman who caught it. Although he doesn't want to part with the shark, the fisherman has agreed to allow scientists to do some studies on it.

At first it was thought that the "eye" may have been fused nasal cavities, but further tests are still to be carried out.

Well, that's definitely a weird looking critter! Maybe he's just deformed? I still wonder if it's not a hoax..
Thanks for sharing with us. It's really interesting! I can't wait to hear more on this li'l guy when they get more info on him. :)

Look at the eye on that thing. It's not transparent at all, it looks like a glass eye, or even worst plastic... I'm calling fake on this one. That and it's from Mexico home of the most forged things in the world.

Why not real? This thing surely would have been eaten or neglected had it been born. I wonder how often we would see this if mothers would stop killing their imperfections?!.!?

It may seem like an unusual story born of the high seas, but fisherman Enrique Lucero León looked mystery right in the eye - its single, solitary eye. From the womb of a dusky shark he found off Cerralvo Island in the Gulf of California, León discovered something extremely rare: a Cyclops shark, in embryo. Article source: Extremely rare Cyclops shark discovered off Mexico.This is amazing..Isn't it?
