Good news? Sharks now walking on land

Sharks are a group of dangerous animals that live in the ocean, they are large, powerful predators, and may sometimes attack and kill people. They are elasmobranch fish characterised by a cartilaginous skeleton.


Scientists have know about walking sharks for a while now, but according to the latest report a team of researchers has recently discovered four new shark species in Australia that can walk on land, bringing the total of walking sharks species to nine, after 12 years in the case of study.

But there's no course for alarm, because the newly discovered shark species which is less than a meter long on average, present no threat to the society, unless you're a sea snail.


But their ability to resist successfully to low oxygen environments and walk on their fins gives them a way out over their prey of small crustaceans and molluscs.
