Possibly An Ancestor?

So, this is a Frilled Shark, considered a 'living fossil', flaring its gills at a cameraman.

Apparently, these things have a long, snake-like compressed body because they're a deep sea species of shark. I dunno about you guys, but my fish definitely reminds me of a shark sometimes.

Not an ancestor but a pretty awesome looking shark. Would love to see one of them one day. Imagine that creepily swimming towards you

Yeah, it's a deep sea shark. They only come to the surface when they are sick or dying.
