So far we have only discovered about 5 to 7 percent of the ocean floor and only about a half percent of the whole ocean. Now imagine all the still undiscovered species lurking in depths.

A recent deep-sea expedition on in the Indian Ocean found potentially 8 new shark species, among them were catsharks, demon and ghost shark. Take a look for yourself.

False Catshark not a new specie but still a very rare find

A new specie of Ghost Shark.

Researchers think this could be a brand new member of the Chimera genus

A specie of Demon Catshark (fishermen caught it at the depth of around 4,200 feet (1,300 m)

A Bird Beak Shark

A new specie of Filetail Catshark

A second new specie of catshark comes with needle-like hooked teeth and exposed gills
