According to a press release by the Alliance of Mediterranean News Agencies, scientists from the country's Institute For The Sea and Atmosphere have dubbed the shark a "living fossil", as remains of the shark date back around 80 million years.

A group of scientists working on an European Union research and conservation mission captured a terrifying-looking shark off the Algarve coast in August - but struggled to identify it, until now.

According to the statement, the species has "a long, slim body and a head that is reminiscent of a snake" and "its biology and ecology are little known".

The shark dates back 80 million years to the "age of the dinosaurs" and is one of the oldest living species today.

Scientists working on the Algarve coast were in for a surprise when they caught a rare frilled shark earlier this week.

The male shark, which measured 1.5m, was caught near the resort of Portimao. The gills of the shark has frilly, fluffy edges, but the cuddly factor ends abruptly there.

Scientists believe it resides off the coast of Australia, Japan and New Zealand. There are a lot of things to that are unknown about this rare and unique frilled shark. The scientists further said that the rare and ancient creature might have inspired 19th-century tales of "sea serpents".
