Cyclops Shark Hoax Pictures: Real or Fake?

There is a Cyclops Shark that was allegedly caught by a commercial fisherman in the Gulf of California earlier this summer.
Many pictures of the Cyclops Shark with one eye can be found on the web and some claim it is a hoax and such a weird animal can't possibly be real.
My question is, is the Cyclops Shark real or fake? Is it really a hoax or is just a mutation of a normal shark?
When you look at the pictures, you doubt it is real because it looks like something you'd see in a movie.
What do you guys think?

The albino fetal Cyclops shark is no an elaborate hoax, it is a real animal that was found in the sea.
Many people doubt it is real because the Cyclops Shark looks like a monster and you can find all kinds of fake photoshopped pictures online.
The reports and photos published this summer made the story of the little cute Cyclops shark go viral.
I checked Snopes and it said it was fake at first but they now changed the article.
A commercial fisherman caught the pregnant mother bull shark in June, and found the mutant embryo with nine normal siblings.

Here's one of his pictures.
