That is a very funky fish...


New forms of marine life are usually tracked down in the rarefied waters of the Great Barrier Reef or Red Sea. A new species of "furry" shark, however, which hops like a frog rather than swims, has been discovered in the unprepossessing habitat of a German aquarium.


Nice find!

Man that is a cool shark Bluecollar
There is a translator on altavista.com called babelfish that lets you translate whole webpages I ran through that german one for you


Obviously new kind of shark in the aquariumaquarium aquarium Sea Star.

COBURG. The aquariumaquarium aquarium Sea Star. in Coburg obviously a still unknown kind of shark discovered.

The shark female, who lives only since short in the aquarium in Coburg, k?e into none well-known 405 shark places to be in-grouped, said the zoo-logical director of the aquarium, Peter Faltermeier.

Only few weeks ago the 70 centimeters long shark had been brought by the zoo Sch?runn in Vienna after Coburg. According to statements of Faltermeier it does not have to be defined also there k?en. Auf the first view one k?te the female into the group of the Ammenhaie arranges, said Faltermeier, which unl?st a technical book?r sharks wrote. Irritating however the being certain eyes are, compared with the short L?e enormous Z?e as well as the K?erbehaarung. Further it is auff?ig that the shark female do not swim k?e, but only hopsen and the fins away-fold k?e like a whale.

Wir sent a photo with the descriptions of the characteristics to shark experts in the whole world, to reported Faltermeier. None the h?e female so far determine k?en. In the n?sten weeks the unknown shark is to be ger?gt and be examined by several f?enden scientists from Germany. Then it will decide whether the shark female in Coburg the 406. Kind of shark in the world is.

It's strange how it hops, now I've seen a picture I want a movie! hehe

Furry shark. That's weird. Soon there will be a market for shark fur jackets. I wonder how it got furry. A few weeks back someone made a post about a furry fish and it was just a fish with fur glued onto it.
