The Atlantic Ocean region known as the Bermuda Triangle has been the center of strange events dating back more than 500 years. Popular culture has attributed these phenomena to the paranormal or even some kind of colossal sea monster, but no one knows anything for sure.

Now, scientists have confirmed the existence of a sea monster in this area that can be really dangerous for humans and other animals.

Marine biologists have been baffled for years by a series of strange marks observed on creatures that inhabit here. In the National Geographic Bermuda Triangle Sharks program, they eventually deciphered this mystery.

The enigmatic triangle contains some of the deepest trenches in the world that are home to little-studied marine animals. One of the trenches is known as the Tongue of the Ocean because of its elongated shape. It is the deepest branch of the Great Bahama Canyon.

Among the shark population that live there, a small one stands out for its bold attacks. It is known as tollo cigar (or cookiecutter shark, also called the cigar shark) and is a terrifying animal with a deceptively sweet name.

This rarely photographed shark performs dramatic vertical migrations. During the day, it inhabits depths of one kilometer, but at night it goes up half a kilometer to hunt. It only grows up to 50 cm, but has the audacity to attack whales, tuna and even large white sharks. The proof is in the wounds it leaves on its victims, a cookie-shaped hole.
