Forget dolphins, find inner peace swimming with sharks

That's what we see from space. Let's try to keep it that way.

When new species are found near populated areas, they are often small and inconspicuous, not, for example, a hammerhead shark.

But that's exactly what a team of researchers discovered along the coast of South Carolina. The new species looks virtually identical to the scalloped hammerhead, but is genetically distinct, and contains about 10 fewer vertebrae, or segments of backbone, new research shows. ... -carolina/

I doubt a swimmer is going to take the time to notice if it's the new shark on the
block, would you?

What the Environment Canada policy advisor got was the experience of a lifetime — a close encounter with a species never before documented in B.C. waters, the Pacific angel shark.

“Fantastic, I was pretty pumped,” he said in an interview on Friday. Cantwell was swimming near shore in his wetsuit on April 30 when another diver, Henry Fisher, reported spotting an unidentifiable creature on the ocean bottom, about 10 metres down. ... b-c-waters

One that doesn't have a taste for humans helps its cause, but still would not want to come to close to it.

While those in BC may be thrilled to have this visitor, I would think the next question they ask is "what is next"? If this shark stays and more Angel Sharks join the party, what will follow thanks to Climate Change?

A California man has captured on video the terrifying moment a great white shark breaks open and enters a shark cage with a diver inside. The man shot the video last week off the coast of Mexico's Guadalupe Island. "On a recent great white shark cage diving trip we experienced a very rare event, a shark breaching the side of the cage," the man, who asked that his name not be used, wrote on YouTube, where he posted the video. "What might appear to be an aggressive great white shark trying to attack the cage, this is not the case." ... d=42796122

Another good reason not to do that. The cages can not be that well built if the shark can break through like that. Relieved the diver
was not injured.

I don't think anyone on the East Coast of Canada wants to swim with it's latest visitor. Lydia the Great White Shark
has dropped by to check things out. ... ers/74224/
