New species of walking sharks discovered in south Pacific

 Good News Notes:

“Four new species of tropical shark that use their fins to walk have been discovered off the coasts of northern Australia and New Guinea during a 12-year study.

The ornately patterned sharks are no threat to humans, preying instead upon small fish and invertebrates in the shallow waters.

The sharks ‘walk’ using their pectoral and pelvic fins, which allows them to forage for food under rocks and coral.”
