The shark is found at a depth of 700 meters, the maximum depth of trawling can be used in Australian waters. Despite the strange and rare, the frilled shark actually been known in biology and called Chlamydoselachus anguineus species.

C. anguineus live at a depth of 50 meters to 1 kilometer. However, the species is more to live in the deep sea so they rare to be seen. The sharks can grow up to 2 meters in length and sometimes a by-catch in the Pacific and the Atlantic.
It is thought the sharks use their flexible necks to grab prey and vicious teeth to hold them. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/15HmXyS)
"The shark was seen coming from the 80 million years ago. It seems prehistoric," said Boag was quoted as saying IFLScience.com on Wednesday, January 21, 2015. According to him C. anguineus regarded as one of the oldest shark still exist to this day.

This species allegedly lived since 95 million years ago. "This shark has 300 teeth which are arranged in more than 25 rows. So once you are in the mouth, you will not come out," said Boag (See another prehistoric fishs that are still alive today). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | IFLSCIENCE.COM]
