This is a frilled shark. Frilled sharks are found throughout deep waters in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It is often described as a “living fossil” because of its resemblance to extinct, Paleozoic sharks.

They’re rarely seen alive because of their preference for deep water. A dying one was captured near the surface in Japan in 2007 and they managed to get a video of it, which you can watch here.
