That's it, we're dead. Now they're evolving at sea, tomorrow they will walk on land. Brace for impact.

Okay. Australian Black Tip ([i]Carcharhinus tilstoni[/i]) [img]http://i.imgur.com/8kcqb.png[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/JOvzO.jpg[/img] (to be honest, I'm not even sure if this is a true Aussie black tip because they are virtually identical) Black Tip Shark ([i]Carcharhinus limbatus)[/i] [img]http://i.imgur.com/Kf3Gk.png[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/rUw6v.jpg[/img] It's an interspecific hybridization between two species, similar in appearance, with overlapping habitats. [quote]Using both genetic testing and body measurements, 57 hybrid animals were identified from five locations, spanning 2000km from northern NSW to far northern Queensland. Although closely related, the two species grow to different maximum sizes and are genetically distinct. Dr Jennifer Ovenden, an expert in genetics of fisheries species and a member of the scientific team said this was the first discovery of sharks hybridizing and it flagged a warning that other closely related shark and ray species around the world may be doing the same thing. [/quote] Those are basically 57 members to a new species of Carcharhinus if scientists can successfully track their health and growth. I feel like adding this because it's a blacktip shark he's petting: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5usnMtNVyp8[/media] TL;DR Sharks are [i]Fucking awesone.[/i]

I apologize in advance. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/zztvp.png[/IMG]
Forgive me if I am wrong but these to types of black fin would be classified as subspecies if they can interbreed and produce fertile offspring, it is not rare for subspecies to do this and example would be three toed and four toed eastern box turtles. So is this hybrid Fertile? If so it means there needs to be a re-classification, if not this is not as big of an evolutionary step as they claim because post zygotic isolation would prevent further evolution within the hybrid population.
[QUOTE=Ignhelper;34129902]Another reason why we shouldn't eat em[/QUOTE] European Union (worlds biggest supplier) planning on banning at sea finning, which allows fishermen to cut the fins off the sharks at sea, and stuff their cargo holds full of just fins. If that law passes they'll have to land the shark carcasses with the fins attached, meaning they won't be able to kill as many. Two of Singapore's biggest markets have stopped selling shark fin, and as far as I know, 4 US states(Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, and California) have made it Illegal and some Canadian cities are playing around with the idea. People have pretty much said "yeah this is a pretty stupid tradition" and stopped doing it, except for the older, more traditional generations of people but they'll die soon so whatever.

We'll have to wait and see as they are now pressing the research into them deeper. Though genetic testing proves that the sharks are separate species of the same genus. Australian Black Tip being [i]Carcharhinus tilstoni[/i], and the common Black Tip being [i]Carcharhinus limbatus.[/i]
[QUOTE=imptastick;34130079] So is this hybrid Fertile?[/QUOTE] this seems to be the big question right now, we'd have to wait and see. however certain hybrids in other groups do end up being fertile. there's no reason the sharks couldn't be as well.
Should have evolved white stripes down the side of they're bodies, everyone know's white stripes make you go faster.
It begins.
[QUOTE=Ghostwork;34130203]this seems to be the big question right now, we'd have to wait and see.[/QUOTE] It all depends if they have the same number of chromosomes or not.
