F’real, that’s an old shark
An ancient Greenland shark has been found in the North Atlantic. Scientists believe it could be between 272 – 512 years old!
They know for a fact this shark is 512 years old because they were at the shark's first birthday party. Plus the shark said it too. pic.twitter.com/z7cLStNd4K

Experts are making that age estimate based on the Greenland shark’s average growth rate as well as carbon dating. The Greenland shark grows very slowly at about 1cm. This behemoth is just over 18 ft. long.

If he was indeed born 512 years ago, that would mean he is older than Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, older than Shakespeare’s plays, Older than Queen Elizabeth the 1st… ALMOST 300 YEARS OLDER THAN THE USA.

We on the Mix Morning Fix have come to the conclusion that this shark actually died many years ago and is in fact a white walker.

2) They both prefer colder temps
3) TBH, They’re most likely just re-animated corpses
