Researchers have found an ancient shark in the North Atlantic, believed to be 512 years old, which could be the oldest living vertebrate in the world.
This particular shark, was measured at 18 feet in length and weighed over a tonne.
By measuring the size of the shark, researchers suggest the animal could have been born as early as 1505, making it even older than Shakespeare..

1) How do they know the shark is 512 Years Old? - For some shark species, scientists use bony structures such as calcified vertebrae to track their age, reading rings that form in the hardened tissue as the shark ages. But Greenland sharks are "soft sharks" whose vertebrae don't harden enough to form telltale age markers, so scientists needed a new method to determine how old the sharks were. The scientists used radiocarbon dating to measure carbon isotopes absorbed by Greenland sharks' eye tissue, The tissue gave them a range for the sharks age — they were at least 272 years old, and as much as 512 years old.

2) Why did you hook his mouth - Firstly know Wonder World did not hook his mouth, the Scientists may have, I just used the footage they filmed. as for why did they hook his mouth, I can only assume, like in Fishing TV shows, they hook the fish, real it in, take note of all it's measurements, then remove the hook and release the fish.

3) He's Not Ugly - "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", which means what you find cute, I can find ugly, I think the Jerboa Hopping Mouse is cute, but people find that ugly. we all like and dislike in different ways, for me i think this shark is ugly looking.
