It's something kids ask time and again when getting tucked into bed. And after reading the same Curious George book for the umpteenth time, it's not uncommon to get a little creative and pull a tall tale out of the ol' noggin. But here is one story to avoid at all costs, and it has to do with a deep-sea creature that looks like its prehistoric ancestors, with dozens of razor-sharp teeth and an eel-like body that's sure to make one shudder. It's the frilled shark, and it's every bit as terrifying to look at as you'd imagine a 6-foot-long "sea serpent" would be.
“It has 300 teeth over 25 rows, so once you’re in that mouth, you’re not coming out,” said Simon Boag, a member of Australia’s South East Trawl Fishing Association.
So remember, while it may be fun to tell your child the story about the real-life sea monster that's an inspiration for sailor folklore dating back centuries, it's probably best to just stick with "Little Bunny Foo Foo."
