That's the trouble with not leaving the house in 36 hours: you miss out on all manner of exciting news, such as the fact that they've discovered a whole new sort of shark in the US.

That's obviously only exciting to me then.

It's not quite on Megalodon levels of thrill as this one's basically a slightly swankier version of a scalloped hammerhead. Mind, those are pretty cool - hammerheads have evolved the hell out of the other 434 species. The reason why they've got those insanely shaped heads is so that they have a wider field of vision and so their ampullae of Lorenzini (basically electric fish detectors) are more spread out. Awesome.
