Cyclops Bull Shark Founded by One Lucky Fishermen, Enrique Lucero León

Leon was shocked to see a male, unusual embryo with its nine siblings. a 22 inch albino Cyclops shark. He noticed right away that the odd looking shark has a single eye at the front of its head.

It happened in July but photos released on the internet are still catching people’s attention. Leon caught a pregnant dusky shark legally from the Gulf of California

That unusual bull shark fetus that Leon posted a couple of weeks ago continues to get a lot of attention. People from Europe are especially fascinated by it and we have been contacted by people in England and France this week by different publications wanting to know more about it.

Lantern Sharks Can Become Invisible, Glow-In-The-Dark

The only thing scarier than a shark is a shark you can't even see.

SAY NO TO SHARK FIN SOUP.......!!!


Why say no to shark fin soup....?
Shark fin soup is a key reason why one-third of the world’s sharks are now threatened with extinction. Up to 73 million sharks per year are slaughtered to make shark fin soup, a vastly popular Asian delicacy.

Captured at sea and hauled on deck, the sharks are often still alive while their fins are hacked off. Because shark meat is not considered as valuable as shark fin, the maimed animals are tossed overboard to drown or bleed to death. The process is called shark finning: a recipe for cruelty and waste.

Lokasi Penangkapan Hiu Makin Menjauh

Hiu Paus Terkecil Di Dunia Ditemukan Di Filipina

ORGANISASI pecinta satwa World Wild Fund (WWF) menyatakan pejabat maritim dan aktivis Filipina berhasil menyelamatkan seekor ikan hiu paus yang dipercaya sebagai jenis hiu paus terkecil di dunia.

Kelompok pecinta satwa Filipina tersebut mengatakan, ikan dengan panjang sekira 42 cm itu merupakan "Ikan hiu paus yang paling kecil sepanjang sejarah".

Untuk menjaga habitatnya, akhirnya mereka dilepaskan kembali ke perairan dalam.

Shark Info: Pantai - Pantai Yang Paling Banyak Hiu Di Amerika Utara

Terungkap, Rahasia Kecepatan Hiu Pemangsa

Hiu memiliki sisik fleksibel yang hampir tak terlihat dengan mata manusia namun terdiri dari materi yang sama untuk membentuk gigi. "Sisi yang tersembunyi ini berfungsi sebagai baju besi sekaligus fitur untuk menyederhanakan gerakan," ujar Amy Lang, teknisi sistem luar angkasa di University of Alabama.
Sebagai contoh, penelitian sebelumnya menyebutkan bahwa hiu mempunyai rambut halus atau cara memanipulasi skala perubahan arah saat melakukan gerakan cepat. Kelincahan ini sangat penting bagi hiu untuk menangkap mangsa yang juga bergerak cepat, misalnya tuna.

15 of the Worst Shark Attacks Ever......!!

Shark attacks are a fairly rare occurrence. Sharks generally don't enjoy eating people, much preferring fattier nautical fare like delicious blubbery seals. Most attacks are a case of mistaken identity, occurring in low visibility situations where a shark is more likely to mistake a flailing human for a tasty sea lion. Still, attacks do happen, and when they do they're often terrifying and horrific. Here are the 15 worst shark attacks ever.

We know they are dangerous, unfortunately many of us comes as their victim. Off course it's so unlucky times and hope it never go back. Let see few stories:

A Shark Fin Promotion Backfires

Citibank has gotten itself into a stew over fish soup — specifically, shark’s fin soup. The soup is considered a delicacy and, because of its priciness, a status symbol in many parts of Asia. But environmentalists have criticized consumption, saying that soaring demand for the fins, mainly from China, has caused a sharp decline in shark populations over the last two decades.
Environmental advocates in Hong Kong say that opposition gathered steam this year amid rising awareness of how many sharks are being killed — 100 million a year — and of how their prized fins are harvested. Usually the fins are cut off a living fish that is then thrown back into the water to die.

GREAT WHITE SHARK (Carcharodon Carcharias)......!!

The Great White Shark is a macropredator found mainly in temperate seas and oceans, but the Great White Shark can also occasionally enter tropical waters. It is principally an epipelagic dweller, which means that it can typically be found in the uppermost layers of the ocean; normally between the ocean surface and the thermocline at a depth of roughly 200 meters. 

The Great White Shark is however known to sometimes venture as far down as 250 meters. It can be found at the surfline as well as in waters very far from the shore. The Great White Shark is found of coastal archipelagos where deep water and shallow shores are located close to each other, and offshore fish reefs can be found.

TIGER SHARK...........!!

The Tiger Shark is called Tiger Shark because of its black, tiger-like markings. Its Latin name is Galeocerdo cuvier and it belongs to the family Carcharhinidae. The famous markings are found on the dark gray-brown back of the Tiger Shark, while the underbelly is off-white. 

Young Tiger Sharks display spotted markings; spots that will grow together and form stripes as the Tiger Shark matures. The Tiger Shark is equipped with a special type of gill slits (spiracles) located behind the shark's eyes.

Shark Fish: Article

In this section of the site you find articles about true sharks (see articles below) and "freshwater sharks". When you purchase so called freshwater sharks from your local fish store, they are usually not sharks. Several types of small and silvery shark-like fish species are marketed as freshwater sharks even though they only have a body form that resembles that of a shark. There are true shark species that lives in freshwater, particularly in Australia, but these true sharks are not recommended for hobby aquarists. 

Great Whites Near Shore More Often Than Believed

(From The Washington Post  / by Juliet Eilperin) - For years, humans have thought of great white sharks wandering the sea at random, only occasionally venturing close to shore. We were wrong.
Pacific white sharks spend months near the northern and central California coast between August and February foraging among elephant seals, sea lions and other prey, according to a new study published online Tuesday in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. The team of 10 California-based researchers determined that these sharks probably pass close to populated beaches and have been spotted as far inland as the mouth of the San Francisco Bay, east of the Golden Gate Bridge.
