If you are among those who have ever watched the blockbuster hit 'Jaws' then you might understand the terror of shark attacks. Though shark attacks are quite rare, still people lose their minds irrationally just at the thought of them. Blame it on the hit movie 'Jaws' or the strange look of sharks; these frightening civilians manage to be the cause of fear of being torn apart by the most vicious predator.
Well, to add more to your knowledge let me tell you that these sharks are becoming more and more worldwide than just being a rare mutant fish. The two-headed sharks are appearing at an alarming number, and the reason behind the growing rates has become a mystery to the researchers.
There is more to it. Read on!
Well, the latest discovery speaks of living two-headed shark.
They have not come across only one such shark. In fact, they discovered many two-headed sharks appearing at an alarming rate ubiquitously.
Many of them seem to be consigned to embryos or infant sharks. Also, the instances of adolescent sharks have been calculated in present time.
A fisherman Christian Johnston spotted this two-headed blue shark off the seashore of Australia. Well, Blue sharks are found more to give birth to a lot of two-headed sharks.
So, this gives a clear idea that there might be chances of the existence of two-headed shark eggs in tonnes.
Well, two-headed sharks have obviously two heads, two livers, two stomachs but one intestinal tract and a brain.
While rearing the several sharks for human-health research, the researchers also found an Atlantic saw tail catshark embryo with two heads.
The over-fishing is prompting more inbreeding in sharks.
What encouraged the growing mutant numbers is a mystery to Science.
Whether it is a pure chance, genetic cause or many other factors like viral infections, the unknown reason is challenging scientists every minute.
Well, good for every novice swimmer. I hope they never find any.
