Born in 1627, Doesn’t Look A Day Over 200 Years Old: The Greenland Shark
This Greenland shark has roamed the sea for nearly 400 years and swam right into our hearts the moment we started following her journey. Millions have been captivated by her graceful drift through infinity. Her special story and newfound stardom inspired a wave of admiration for not only the lovely 397 year old lady, but for the entire Greenland shark species.
We gather here to celebrate and memorialize the Greenland shark as the hard-core, cold-blooded undying vertebrates that they are. And to the lady who dropped our jaws and stole our hearts, we wish we could give you a hug. The next 10 assorted internet clippings are but a mosaic of the internet's reaction to the eternal and iconic Greenland shark.
The gorgeous gal and many other Greenland sharks allow a certain parasite to latch onto their eyes, raise a family, build a house, send their kids to college, and stay well fed thanks to the incomparable rent prices on the sleeper sharks eyes.
