i especially like this comment........

The shark died a few hours after being caught.

What the??

Am i missing something. They take this thing outta its natural environment, plonk it in a pool, and tape it moving, cos apparently, footage of them moving is a bit thin on the ground.???

I guess i could/should pay more creedance to this preface....

The shark appeared to be in poor condition when park staff moved it to a seawater pool where they filmed it swimming and opening its jaws.

But if all they wanted to do was film it, couldn't that've been done without removing it from its natural environment, where it probably stood more of a chance of survival???

Or am i just reading too much into the report, it is a report from the west after all.....

But ya right, weird looking mofo ain't it

At least we now know it can swim and (oh my god, wouldn't have guessed) open its jaws!!

And just when I was thinking it got nutrition from shoving fish up it's ......

Then again I don't know I'd want to be swiming with that weird thing. I'd probably prefer to film it from the outside of a tank (just in case it can open it's jaws alot wider)!!..

Some wierd stuff down deep!!
(insert jaws music here)

I heard on the news before that it was caught, don't know if that was by scientists or professionals accidently. But it sounded like it was an unintentional thing. Spose i should really read up more and see.
