Scientists have discovered a baby ghost shark which was found swimming 1,200 meters deep in the ocean off the coast of South Island.

According to the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric research, this discovery is extremely rare as ghost sharks (scientifically known as chimaera) primarily reside in the deep ocean waters and are therefore, not easily accessible.

The team of researchers who spotted the newly-hatched ghost shark are hoping that the discovery will enable them to learn more about the “mysterious” species.

Brit Finucci, fisheries scientist and researcher, told CNN News, "We don't actually know a lot about ghost sharks. What we do know mostly comes from adult specimens. So it's very rare and very uncommon to find juveniles of a lot of these species, so that's why I got quite excited."
