Sightings of bigfoot, lake monsters around the world, and the chupacabras are just some of the many cryptozoological stories on the rise! Although many of these stories are controversial - some have evidence that defies belief.

WASHINGTON - A fisherman in the Gulf of California has made scientific history by catching an albino fetal shark with one eye.

Live Science reports that the Cyclops shark was sliced from the belly of a pregnant Dusky shark earlier this summer.

Shark researchers have examined the preserved creature and found that its single eye is made of functional optical tissue.

However, Live Science reports that the malformed creature would probably not have survived outside the womb.

News of the one-eyed shark went viral earlier this summer after Pisces Fleet, a sportfishing company, posted photos of the odd-looking animal.

Live Science reports the fisherman who caught the Cyclops shark is planning to hang on to the preserved remains.
