Ok cryptoids here is an interesting story worth no more than a passing thought
Allegedly, if we read the news, a 3m, 500kg ??? White dives down nearly six hundred meters and is then suddenly experiencing 26 degree water
Ok thats cool, but a shark in 8 degree waters registering 26 degrees (probably eaten and in some things belly).
I have let my imagination run wild on this, the paper alledges killer whales. Not likely at 600 meters depth as they breathe air
"She dived quickly down the edge of the continental shelf to a depth of 580m where the external tag had a temperature reading of 8C. Suddenly,
still at 580m deep, the tag's temperature shot up to 26C.
It stayed at that temperature, at varying depths, for about a week until it was released and floated to the surface.
The most likely scenario was that, after being chased to the ocean floor, the shark and its tag were eaten by another creature.'
Seems what ever took the shark probably ate it before passing out the tag some time latter.
What could take a shark that size and eat it and remain submerged for about a week,,,at least
any theories, another shark, killer whale or squid.
Or something unknown and bigger
I recon there is a good story for the imagination in this.
