Mark the Shark was lucky enough to catch one of the rarest sea creatures. The bizarre sea monster is known as a Dactylobatus clarkii or Hookskate and it is considered a rare sight due to the fact that this species spends most of its time in the depths of the ocean.
The monster was compared to a dinosaur as it weighed 800 pounds. Hookskates generally swim in depths of over 1000 feet, hence making them extremely rare to catch. It is a mystery as to what the creature was doing in such shallow waters, but for us, it is a great opportunity to see them up-close, even if just in pictures.
