The Southern African frilled shark, Chlamydoselachus sp A, is a primitive Shark of the family Chlamydoselachidae in the order These two species are very different from the other hexanchiform sharks, and it has recently been proposed that the two frilled sharks should be given their own order: Chlamydoselachiformes. Additional extinct types are known from fossil teeth; thought to be extinct itself, it was only discovered in Japanese waters in the 19th century.

The shark was captured but, being in poor health, died shortly afterwards. 
Superficially, the frilled shark resembles a dark brown or grey eel, but the six gill slits identify it as a shark. True eels ( Anguilliformes) are an order of Fish, which consists of four suborders 19 families 110 Genera and approximately 600 Gill slits are Gills with individual openings rather than an outer cover The tissue of the gill slits protrudes somewhat, thus inspiring the common name. Its dorsal fin is small, anal fin large, and the caudal fin (tail fin) is highly asymmetric, the dorsal part almost unnoticeable.

It has been recorded at up to 2 m in length.
Distribution is worldwide, but they are very rarely found in shallow water. They have been reported in all oceans but are mainly found near Norway, South Africa, New Zealand, and Chile.

Reproduction is not well understood, but like many other sharks they bear live young (ovoviviparous), with litter sizes of 2 to 12 pups. Ovoviviparous Animals develop within eggs that remain within the mother's body up until they hatch or are about to hatch Compagno states "They are pregnant for a long time, probably one to two years". Leonard J V Compagno is an international authority on shark taxonomy and the author of many scientific papers and books on the subject best known of which is his 1984 catalogue of shark
Frilled sharks appear regularly in the catches from bottom trawling, and when caught are used as food or for fishmeal. Bottom trawling is Trawling (towing a trawl, which is a Fishing net) along the sea floor Fish meal, or fishmeal, is a commercial product made from both whole Fish and the bones and Offal from processed fish

The shark died a few hours after capture. This rare surface appearance of a frilled shark has been attributed to the animal being unwell and possibly disoriented.
