This is the terrifying moment a shark longer than a submarine emerges from the ocean’s murky depths.

Shocking footage shows the giant Bluntnose Sixgill, which can grow up to 20 feet in length, gliding over the submersible containing at least two deep sea scientists.

The monstrous predator swam out of the gloom at 528 metres below the surface, where sunlight cannot penetrate, in Cape Eleuthera off the coast of the Bahamas.

IT’S COMING: Spanish scientists have created human-monkey chimera in China

Researchers led by Spanish scientist Juan Carlos Izpisúa have created for the first time a human-monkey hybrid in a laboratory in China – an important step towards using animals for human organ transplants, project collaborator Estrella Núñez confirmed to EL PAÍS.

The team, made up of members of the Salk Institute in the United States and the Murcia Catholic University (UCAM) in Spain, genetically modified monkey embryos to deactivate genes that are essential to the formation of organs.

The scientists then injected human stem cells, which are capable of creating any type of tissue, into the embryo. The product of this work is a monkey with human cells that has not been born, because researchers stopped the process.

The experiment took place in China to avoid legal issues.

Japan approved experiments that would allow for animal-human hybrids to be born for the first time ever

Japan’s government approved a request for stem-cell experiments meant to create an animal-human hybrid and allow it to be brought to term.

The experiment, which still requires approval from the Japanese science ministry, would create animal embryos that contain human cells and transplant them into surrogate animals.

While other countries have experimented on creating human-animal embryos, Japan is now the first country to support experiments that will allow animals with human cells to come to full-term.
