Shark experts are very upset with porn star Molly Cavalli. Last week, she appeared in a video produced by the live sex site CamSoda in which she claims a shark bit her foot. Based on every piece of confirmable evidence, however, it looks like the video is a complete hoax.
The Australian state of Queensland was hit hard this week by a vicious tropical cyclone. And while there has been property damage, thankfully no one was seriously injured by Cyclone Debbie. Well, no one, unless you count this 5-foot long shark that was found dead this morning near the floodwaters.
After a super crappy fourth movie in a franchise, it takes a lot to win back an audience—and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is doing its best. It’s bringing back some old favorites, has a solid new cast, and now, two more tempting words: ghost sharks.
As currents shift in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, they bring an abundance of nutrients and plankton to the region, luring predators of all sizes. Swarms of anchoveta arrive first for an easy meal, but soon find themselves having to come up with unique ways to fend off larger predators like sharks and tuna. The…
Megalodon, the largest shark to have ever terrorized our planet’s oceans, may have gone extinct owing to its limited dietary preference for dwarf whales, according to new research.
Remotely operated vehicle surveys off the coast of California and Hawaii have produced several observations of a large deep sea ghost shark known as a “pointy-nosed blue chimaera.” The resulting video footage is the first-ever recorded of this elusive species in its natural habitat.
Harrowing new video shows a large great white shark lunging for a chunk of tuna—and then wriggling its way inside a shark-proof cage with a diver inside. Thankfully no one was hurt, but the video is as horrifying as it sounds.
As Alfred pointed out in The Dark Knight, some men just like to watch the world burn. To them, a day at the beach spent lounging in the sun isn’t particularly enjoyable. But a day at the beach spent terrorizing swimmers with this amazing animatronic shark suit? Now that’s an afternoon well spent.
Chill out, man. It was cute the first time you jumped out of nowhere. And maybe still sort of amusing the second time you missile’d yourself out of the water. But when the shark comes breaching once again?
On August 3rd, researchers discovered a dead mink whale floating belly up off the coast of Cape Cod. The next day, the same carcass was spotted again; ravaged almost beyond recognition. Its tongue, internal organs, and most of its skeletal muscles had been ripped off, leaving “little more than the spinal column and…
The deep sea is home to creatures that are sort of normal but then have some sick twist that make them monstrous and so creepy you want to peel your skin off. A squid can’t be just a squid, it has to be a giant squid the size of a school bus. A shark can’t just be a shark, it has to be a goblin shark with a jaw that…
To be fair, whale sharks don’t come in any size other than “huge.” That’s kind of their thing, being that they’re the largest fish species on Earth. How huge are they? How does approximately 40-feet long and 45,000 pounds strike you?
You’re looking at the first-ever sonogram of a pregnant tiger shark. The baby sharks inside the mother shark’s belly have been highlighted in the footage below so you can see them more easily. But even without the added outline and color, you can very clearly see the sharks’ heads and their very frightening rows of…
Smithsonian Channel’s Secrets of Shark Island is a wonderful documentary about the ecosystem in the waters around the Revillagigedo Islands, a group of four volcanic islands 240 miles off of Mexico. Because it’s “the only natural juncture for miles” in the Pacific Ocean, there’s a lot going on around there. Most…
This footage, captured above the appropriately named Shark Bay in Western Australia, shows what happens when 70 sharks come across a whale. It involves rather a lot of blood.
Whoa. This aerial view, courtesy of a drone, captures something not often seen: a pod of false killer whales (which are a species of dolphins, of course) chasing and hunting down a shark in the waters near Sydney, Australia. You can see the gang of false killer whales basically acting like a pack of wolves on a hunt,…
Forget that movie where Blake Lively hides from a shark on a rock. Give us, instead, Jason Fuckin’ Statham going up against a bloodthirsty, 60-foot-long Megalodon that’s somehow been chilling in the Mariana Trench for millions and millions of years. We’re gonna need a bigger boat... full of popcorn.
Summer is coming, which means one thing: it’s almost shark-movie season! In The Shallows, a great white that has no business being so close to shore menaces an extremely unlucky surfer (Blake Lively) who’s been stranded on a rock tantalizingly close to the (deserted) beach.
Drones are slowly but surely becoming part of the equation for emergency services for jobs like search-and-rescue or avalanche prevention. Australia’s taking things a step further, thanks to the introduction of a long-range helicopter drone to help with a very Australian problem.
