Hem hem. Allow my to introduce the Greenland Shark, otherwise known as the Eqalussuaq (Inuit name). Next to the Great White it is the largest shark in our oceans, and can be found around Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Scotland, a lot further north than any other shark.
What’s scary about this shark is that scientists know very little about it. As Icelandic people today catch and eat these creatures, it is save to assume that Vikings did also, which means they knew more about them then than we do now.
These sharks live in deep water, the common max depth being 6,561 feet, that’s taller than the Empire State Building. They are known to come up on occasion, though and as their dorsal fin is quite small are not as easily recognised as a shark when they are up at the surface.
This shark is quite possibly the creature that sparked the legend of the Lock Ness Monster and other, Icelandic, monster that the Vikings believed in.
