Wikipedia reference

Sevengill shark is not just "jurassic shark". It is also melancholic shark. It is possible even to touch them as they swim past you. It's difficult to imagine that these guys can be quite fast and lethal - they are even capable of assaulting fur seals, fast and energetic swimmers...
