Land-shark ho!!!1

Isn’t this a tasty little bit of evolution?  Scientists have discovered a new species of shark that walks on its fins.

Scientists combing through undersea wonders off Indonesia’s Papua province said today they had discovered dozens of new species, including a shark that walks on its fins and a shrimp that looks like a praying mantis.

. . .

Erdmann, an American, and his team claim to have discovered 52 new species, including 24 new types of fish, 20 new kinds of coral and eight new species of shrimp.

Among the highlights were an epaulette shark that walks on its fins, a praying mantis-like shrimp and scores of reef-building corals, he said.

That old SNL sketch doesn’t seem so wacky now, does it?
