Super-rare Greenland shark that washed up on UK beach may be at least 100 years old

A rare greenland shark that washed up on a UK beach could be at least 100 years old, but experts aren’t sure why it became stranded.

The dead shark was first spotted on the sand in Newlyn Harbour, Cornwall, on the southwest coast of England, on March 13. But before experts could examine it, the tide came in and took the carcass back out to sea, according to Cornwall Wildlife Trust Twitter posts.
