12.2 Cyclops shark

A fetal shark cut from the belly of a pregnant shark caught in the Gulf of California. The shark, which would likely not have survived outside the womb, had only one eye.

This is the real deal, a one-eyed [cyclops] albino shark:

"The fisherman who discovered the Cyclops shark is reportedly hanging on to the preserved remains, news outlets reported. But scientists have recently examined and X-rayed the fish, authenticating the catch. According to Seth Romans, a spokesman for Pisces Fleet, Galvan Magana and his colleagues will publish a scientific paper about the find within the next several weeks." - Source: http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/10/18/albino-cyclops-shark-is-real-experts-say/?test=faces
