    Pretty cool!! It's always exiting when a new species of fish is discovered. Especially sharks:)

    Very interesting.... and I believe there are a lot more species we have not even dreamed existed.

    Neat. But why is it always the Galapagos?

    Is that where your species has its wormhole to drop new species off, Dino?

    I will not confirm or deny the existence of a worm hold near the Galapagos. I don't know nothing about that USO base located 12 miles off the east shore of EspaƱola Island. Nothing at all.

    Ah. Nothing like good ol' plausible deniability.

    AHHA! if you dont know nothing thats a double negative implying that you DO know something about this wormhole!

    I want one.
    Why can't they go back to the location and see these sharks?
    Also I don't think they should have collected so many specimens.

    Never should have introduced you monkeys to logic!

    I admit, there MAY be a wormhole near the Galapagos.

    Im not a monkey, I came from a fish, hence the user name...

    Sorry, I usually only keep track of naughty and nice, not species of origin.
    Your entry has been noted on the N/N list.

    "Ninety percent of the sharks that were in the ocean when I was born are gone," McCosker said. "

    Dino, i'm going to cry - can you find the primates (or just vertebrates.. or invertebrates) responsible for this and bump them on your naughty list?

    Great article though, but as a geneticist i'm floundering as to why anyone would think to store all tissue sample in formaldehyde in the late '90s. I would have assumed they would have enough brains to store some tissue in the deep freeze for playing with later. Fools.

    Yeah, I was disturbed to read that as well.
    Even back in the 80's/90's, when I was in Uni, we were not doing that.
