KEY WEST, Fla.- This creepy fish is real, and it was just caught in the Gulf of Mexico, off the Florida Keys.

Government biologists posted this photo on Facebook of a "goblin shark."

They say a shrimper accidentally reeled in the 18-foot fish. Biologists claim it was only the second goblin shark ever caught in the Gulf of Mexico on record.
