Hybrid cars, Hybrid corn, now Hybrid sharks?
I love this bit of info. It disproves two wingnut theories (myths). First that there is no evolution and second that there is no global warming.
Scientists said on Tuesday that they had discovered the world's first hybrid sharks in Australian waters, a potential sign the predators were adapting to cope with climate change.
The mating of the local Australian black-tip shark with its global counterpart, the common black-tip, was an unprecedented discovery with implications for the entire shark world, said lead researcher Jess Morgan.
"It's very surprising because no one's ever seen shark hybrids before, this is not a common occurrence by any stretch of the imagination," Morgan, from the University of Queensland, told AFP.
"This is evolution in action."
If there was no evolution then viruses wouldn't mutate as any scientist can tell you. That's right boys and girls we aren't the same creatures that roamed the planet 6000 years ago or even 2000. I just wonder if we're smart enough to mate with heat enduring people. Ah oh that would mean paring up with the folks in Africa and the middle east. Oops better start being kind to them now or your offspring may be the last of the line genealogically speaking.
