First shark hybrids spotted


SYDNEY: Australian scientists have hailed what they described as a world-first discovery of two shark species interbreed­ing, which could help sharks cope with warmer oceans. Researcher Jess Morgan said the mating of the Australian black-tip shark with its global counterpar­t, the black-tip, was unpreceden­ted. “No one has ever seen shark hybrids before. This is evolution in action.”
